Directed by Mark Haborth and produced by Heather Siobhan Curran, The Gallery Players' revival of this classic New York musical comedy opens Saturday, April 28 at 8pm.
This delightful staple of the musical theatre canon is about the adventures and misadventures of two sisters who move from small-town Ohio to the bohemia of 1935 Greenwich Village. Eileen is gorgeous, sweet and an aspiring actress with men falling at her feet. Ruth, while a gifted writer, is average, brazen and has a talent for repelling gentlemen callers. With a glorious score of swinging tunes by Leonard Bernstein, Betty Comden and Adolph Green, Wonderful Town is the quintessential New York musical comedy about tackling your dreams and finding love in the most unexpected places. Wonderful Town is the winner of five Tony Awards in 1953 including Best Musical.
The Gallery Players' Wonderful Town stars Molly Pope as Ruth and Laurie Sutton as her sister Eileen. The cast also features Brian Bailey, Monica Bradley, Nathan Brisby, Ronn Burton, Mark Cajigao, Angela Dirksen, Brad Giovanine, A J Hughes, Maureen Kelley, Adam Kemmerer, Matthew Warner Kiernan, Maggie Marino, Alida Michal, Alex Pagels, Will Roland and Lindsay Sutton.
