Our inaugural season of Wednesdays @ One performances continues at the historic Baker Community Center.
Theater historian and storyteller Charles Troy documents the story behind the creation of one of the world’s most beloved musicals, Lerner and Loewe’s “My Fair Lady.” Follow a creative path beginning with George Bernard Shaw’s “Pygmalion” in 1912, a theatrical comedy that was produced as a motion picture in 1938. Then discover how Lerner and Loewe turned this complex material – an intellectual drawing-room comedy – into a stunning musical theater achievement. Charles Troy employs a seamless blend of recorded songs, original graphics, vintage photos, historic video, and scripted narrative to dramatize the stories of the American musical theater.
Wednesdays @ One events are made possible by a generous contribution from Colonial Cafe restaurants.
