Florence Lacey, the final actor to play the title role in the original Broadway production of Evita, will star in the world premiere of Kaleidoscope. The new musical will be presented May 4–28 at ArtSpace Falls Church in Falls Church, Virginia.
Presented by Creative Cauldron, the show is written by Matt Conner and Stephen Gregory Smith.
Lacey, most recently on Broadway in the 2011 revival of Follies, will play a Broadway actor who is touring in a solo show about her star-studded life in the theatre. “As the tour moves on, her memory of these stories starts to elude her,” press notes state. “As her stage manager and director come to her aid, the symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease become clear.”
Lacey will be joined by Susan Derry (Monsters…, The Turn of the Screw), Catherine Purcell (Monsters…), and Sophia Manicone (Ruthless! The Musical). The creative team includes music director Warren Freeman, scenic designer Margie Jervis, costume designer Alison Johnson, and lighting designer Lynn Joslin.
