Then you can buy a ticket to the new Broadway revival of the Leonard Berstein, Betty Comden and Adolph Green musical Wonderful Town, scheduled to open Nov. 23 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre, after previews from Nov. 5.
When the Hirschfeld box office opens at 10 AM Oct. 13, a limited number of seats will be available for all performances (excluding opening night) through Dec. 21st at the low price of $5 each. Service is first-come, first-served, with a limit of two tickets per person. All tickets must be purchased at the box office with cash. The offer is only good on Oct. 13.
Donna Murphy, Gregg Edelman, Jennifer Westfeldt, Nancy Anderson, Randy Danson, Peter Benson, Michael McGrath, David Margulies, Raymond Jaramillo McLeod, Stanley Wayne Mathis and Timothy Shew will play the principal parts in Wonderful Town. As previously reported by Playbill On-Line, Broadway vet Edelman will play the role of Robert Baker. The character sings the choice Bernstein ballad, "A Quiet Girl," and the peppery tale of career disappointment, "What a Waste." "Kissing Jessica Stein" star Jennifer Westfeldt will essay the role of Eileen.
A Class Act star Anderson will play Helen; Danson (Pericles) will be Mrs. Wade; Benson (Picasso at the Lapin Agile) is Frank Lippincott; McGrath (Little Me) is Chick Clark; Margulies (45 Seconds from Broadway) plays Appopolous; McLeod (Dance of the Vampires) portrays Wreck; Mathis (Kiss Me, Kate) is Speedy Valenti; and Shew (The Scarlet Pimpernel) is Officer Lonigan.
In the ensemble are Ken Barnett, Joyce Chittick, Susan Derry, Randy Donaldson, David Eggers, Rick Faugno, Stephanie Fredricks, Lorin Latarro, Lisa Mayer, Linda Mugleston, Tina Ou, Vince Pesce, Mark Price, Devin Richards, Angela Robinson, Matthew Shepherd, Megan Sikora, JD Webster and Ray Wills. The tale of two sisters who move from Ohio to Greenwich Village in the 1930s features Murphy as big sister Ruth, the comic alto role (in contrast to soprano Eileen). The libretto by Joseph Fields & Jerome Chodorov is based on their play, My Sister Eileen, which was based on stories by Ruth McKenney.
