Gordon Greenberg and Lorin Latarro Will Helm Radio Play Version of Meet Me in St. Louis at Bucks County
31 Jul 2013
Bucks County Playhouse, under the producing direction of Jed Bernstein, will present Meet Me in St. Louis: A Live Radio Play as the company's 2013 holiday show — set in a similar fashion as last year's holiday show It's A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play — beginning Dec. 4 in New Hope, PA.
The 2013 Radio Play is adapted by Joe Landry from the book by Hugh Wheeler, with direction by Gordon Greenberg (Working) and choreography by Lorin Latarro (Hands on a Hardbody, Scandalous). Performances will continue through Dec. 29.
"We are pleased to be bringing another collaborative Radio Play back to the Bucks County Playhouse for the holidays," said Bernstein in a statement. "This is an art form that has been lost to technology, and we are proud to be making this a New Hope tradition."
Casting will be announced at a later date.
Based on The Kensington Stories by Sally Benson and the MGM motion picture "Meet Me In St. Louis," starring Judy Garland, Meet Me In St. Louis: A Live Radio Play will feature songs by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blaine, including classics such as "The Boy Next Door," "Skip To My Lou," "The Trolley Song," "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" and "Meet Me in St. Louis."
The Bucks County Playhouse is located at 70 South Main Street in New Hope, PA. For more information and tickets, call (215) 862-2121 or visit BCPTheater.org.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
