WONDERFUL TOWN to play at Ye Olde Rose and Crown
To conclude our 2016 season, All Star Productions are delighted to present a new chamber production of Leonard Bernstein’s 1953 musical WONDERFUL TOWN.
Based on the play, MY SISTER EILEEN by Joseph Fields and Jerome Chodorov, the Tony award winning WONDERFUL TOWN is a bright and cheery love letter to the colorful experience of living life in New York in the 1930’s.
The show tells the story of two sisters, Ruth and Eileen, who move from a rural town in Ohio to experience the bright lights, the big city, and the crazy characters of Greenwich Village, New York City. Ruth is an aspiring writer and Eileen is a dancer who wants to pursue a life on stage. One sister can’t find a man no matter what she does, the other can’t keep them away. Together, these two sisters take on the world, pursuing their dreams and finding love along the way.
WONDERFUL TOWN features a bright Leonard Bernstein score, including such classics as A Little Bit in Love, One Hundred Easy Ways to Loose a Man, A Quiet Girl and Ohio.
The show will be directed by Tim McArthur.
