This semi-formal event, the first-ever fundraiser for the Mysterium Theater, promises a full evening of top-flight entertainment. First up at A Winter's Eve is a wine and appetizer reception, where you can browse and bid on silent auction items. That's followed by a seated dinner, set to include Cornish game hen, an orzo and vegetable combo, salad, dessert and hot cider, or wassail. Then you'll be treated to a musical revue featuring hits from the Great American Songbook by the Gershwins, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin, performed by a cast of 24 of Mysterium's finest actor-singers. As a capper to this festive evening, take advantage of the quick ballroom and swing lesson, so you can dance the rest of the night away to big-band music. Learn More

While not among the best I've seen at FCLO, still a very enjoyable afternoon...very strong cast, wonderful and familiar songs, impressive set. For me, the weakness was the script that did not have time to develop the fascinating relationship between Virginia (Ginger) and her mother, Lela AND show Ginger's astonishing career. There are at least two stories here. Still, if you want a glimpse into what it was like to be Ginger Rogers, dancing backward in high heels, marrying five times, and winning an Oscar after a stunning career move...don't miss this one. It's good.
Conceived and developed by Lynnette Barkley and Christopher Mc Govern
Book/Musical arrangement/Original songs by Christopher McGovern
Come 'dance' down memory lane to "I Got Rhythm", "Fascinatin' Rhythm", "Let's Call The Whole Thing Off", "Embraceable You", "We're in the Money" and "A Fine Romance". Making its West Coast premiere, Backwards in High Heels features a supporting ensemble of 16 dancers and full orchestra, plus elaborate original scenery and costumes.
