For The Love Of God, a new mini-musical by Sheldon Harnick, will receive its premiere at the West Village Musical Theater Festival.
The musical, which captures the moment the Bible's 100-year-old Abraham tells his 90-year-old wife Sarah she's going to have a baby, features work by Harnick and his collaborators, composer Donald Oliver (The Case of the Dead Flamingo Dancer) and Marc Acito (Allegiance, A Room with a View).
For The Love Of God is conceived as part of the "revuesical" In the Name of Love, with music by Oliver and lyrics by a group of lyricists that include David Zippel, Peter Mills, David Spencer and Amanda Yesnowitz.
"I'll confess that much of what I wrote is based on my marriage, which will achieve 'golden' status next year," Harnick said in a statement.
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
