Highlights From A Room With A View at The Old Globe
Made famous by the Oscar-winning 1985 movie adaptation starring Helena Bonham Carter, E.M. Forster's A Room With A View finds yet another life, this time on stage. With Scott Schwartz (Golda's Balcony, Jane Eyre) at the helm, San Diego's Old Globe Theatre presents this world-premiere musical with music by Jeffrey Stock and a book by Marc Acito. The story is set in Tuscany as sheltered English girl Lucy Honeychurch (Ephie Aardema) meets free-thinker George Emerson (Kyle Harris) and for the first time begins to imagine what life could be like outside of the bounds of Edwardian convention. Her overbearing chaperone (Tony winner Karen Ziemba) thinks otherwise. Performance dates are extended through April 15. For more on the show, click here.
