A TRIBUTE TO LERNER & LOEWE
Brent Barrett, Jim Caruso, Alexander Gemignani, Celia Keenan-Bolger, Sarah Jane McMahon, Daniel Riechard, Max von Essen and more will convene to honor the dynamic duo ofAlan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe. Vienna-born composer, Loewe, and lyricist-playwright, Lerner, met in 1942. Had they not, BRIGADOON would never have materialized from the Scottish mists to make the world feel Almost Like Being in Love … MY FAIR LADY would still be a less than lyrical English girl from Shaw’s PYGMALION … we might never have thought to Thank Heaven for Little Girls like GIGI …CAMELOT would have stayed within the pages of Arthurian legend, and no one would have been there to PAINT YOUR WAGON.
