COLONIAL CAFE Presents “Wednesdays @One”
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’s unique presentations employ a seamless blend of recorded songs (with lyrics projected on screen), original graphics, vintage photos, historic video, and an extensively researched, scripted narrative to dramatize the stories behind the great creations of the American musical theater.
Please note: This and all “Wednesdays @One” events are open to the public and presented free of charge, thanks to the generous support of Colonial Cafe.
