Tony Award winner Karen Ziemba stars as Charlotte Bartlett, the overbearing chaperone of Lucy Honeychurch, in the new musical A Room With a View, based on the E.M. Forster novel, getting its world premiere March 2-April 8 by The Old Globe in San Diego.
According to The Old Globe, "Room With a View blends a gorgeous score with the timeless story that inspired the Academy Award-winning film. Amid the golden sunlight and violet-covered hills of Tuscany, sheltered English girl Lucy Honeychurch meets freethinking George Emerson and for the first time glimpses a world of longing and passion she had never imagined. Upon her return to her corseted Edwardian life, Lucy must decide whether to yield to convention or give up everything she has ever known. This enchanting new musical gives a new voice to these unforgettable characters."
