JUST ADDED PERFORMANCE: Apr 27 at 2:00pm
The new adaptation of Lady in the Dark, the rarely-seen masterpiece with music by Kurt Weill, lyrics by Ira Gershwin, book by Moss Hart, and script adaptation by Christopher Hart, is directed and conducted by Ted Sperling, with choreography by Doug Varone and will star Tony Award winner Victoria Clark. Taking advantage of a new critical edition of the script and score, and to bring the show’s surreal Glamour, Wedding and Circus dream sequences for which the ground-breaking Broadway musical is known to vivid life, MasterVoices has enlisted the curatorial help of Vogue international editor-at-large Hamish Bowles to identify young designers to collaborate on the costumes.
Lady in the Dark will feature the 130 singers of MasterVoices, Orchestra of St. Luke’s, Doug Varone and Dancers and a cast of Broadway, television and movie stars. This presentation will be, in its own way, as lush and extravagant as the original production of 1941. Mr. Sperling added, “Lady in the Dark is a piece I have loved since discovering it 35 years ago. I had the pleasure of directing a full production at the Prince Music Theater in Philadelphia in 2001, and now am finally able to bring this neglected masterpiece back to New York, directing my great college friend, Victoria Clark…. It’s a dream come true.”
