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
Irving Berlin once summed up the pair's achievement with his famous rhyming maxim: "Tuneful and tasty, schmaltzy and smart---music by Rodgers, lyrics by Hart." The Rodgers/Hart partnership resulted in the scores for 30 stage musicals and nine films. (Rodgers, of course, later worked with lyricist Oscar Hammerstein.)
"Beguiled Again" is a cleverly compiled revue of songs and vignettes. One sequence evokes the frenzy of the "Hollywood Machine" with the studio employees racing from one picture to another and a most unlikely starlet who gets "discovered." A live radio show is presented replete with the slick host, trio of songbirds, and overwrought stage manager who provides all the sound effects including a tap number with the shoes on his hands.
The show's limited Southern California tour is produced by Broadway singer/actress Teri Ralston, who also performs in the revue. Ralston was featured in the original Broadway casts of Stephen Sondheim's "Company" and "A Little Night Music."
