A Good Friday for Theatre

Dear Friends,

Happy Easter! Today we thought we would share with you a wonderful new play that has just opened on Broadway: Edward Albee’s Three Tall Women.

It is staring Glenda Jackson, Laurie Metcalf, and Alison Pill and is directed by Joe Mantello.

According to Jesse Green, New York Times:

Glenda Jackson is back; even better, she’s back in a role that’s big enough to need her. Watching these three women in “Three Tall Women” means seeing the ghosts and echoes of many other women as well. They complete Albee’s imaginative leap into difficult souls, which of course means all of us. And they honor a play that despite its frailties and wrinkles has aged beautifully, into a burning, raving classic.

Three Tall Women is playing at the Golden Theatre (252 W. 45th Street) from now until June 24th. Don’t wait—you do not want to miss out on this fantastic play!

Best regards,

Once On This Island

Dear Friends,

We wanted to share with you a wonderful musical that we think is simply fantastic and our daughter and granddaughters keep raving about: Once On This Island.

It is a powerful story about life and love, where one island girl embarks on a journey to find the love of her life. The story is filled with laughter and amazing music with vibrant costumes. It stars Tony Award winner Lea Salonga, Alex Newell, Tamyra Gray, and Norm Lewis as the Island Gods who help the girl along her way.

Jesse Green, The New York Times, says that “the hallmark ingenuity, warmth and intensity bordering on excess that characterize Mr. Arden’s style is recapitulated everywhere within the production, from the frankly stupendous singing (Chris Fenwick is the music supervisor) to the electric choreography of Camille A. Brown.” You can read the full review here.
