Directed by David Lee with choreography by Peggy Hickey and musical direction by Steve Orich, the cast includes William Atherton (Honore), Matt Cavenaugh (Gaston), Jason Graae (Dufresne and other roles), Susan Denaker (Aunt Alicia), Millicent Martin (Mamita) and Lisa O'Hare (Gigi).

Gigi features book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe.

The musical by the writers who gave the world Brigadoon, My Fair Lady and Camelot tells the story of the young tomboy Gigi and her friendship with Gaston, the most eligible bachelor in Paris — a friendship that he realizes is something more when her great-aunt's lessons take effect and Gigi suddenly becomes a young woman.

Jason Alexander, artistic director of Reprise Theatre Company, said in a previous statement, "Gigi explores the values and mores of love for a couple who socially do not belong together. They come from two different classes, and their behavior should subscribe to a strict code of conduct but is challenged by their true passion for each other."

Tickets are available by visiting www.reprise.org or by calling (310) 825-2101.
