Horton, meet The Green Bird. Seussical star Kevin Chamberlin (with Saved director Robert Woodruff) attended the Saved opening night Feb. 25 alongside a smattering of Green Bird alumni - Ned Eisenberg, director Julie Taymor and Didi Conn. Theatre for a New Audience, producers of Saved, also first staged The Green Bird.
When Saved first opened in London in 1965, the dark working class drama sparked a controversy for its brutal depiction of young bored Londoners stoning a baby. This central event causes the play's loner protagonist, Len (Pete Starrett), to realize that he could have stopped them, a realization powerful enough to make him feel saved.
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
