Experience the life of a Hollywood icon as the historic Alex Theatre hosts Loretta Young's 100th birthday gala. A paragon of grace and beauty, the Oscar- and Emmy-winning actress stole Clark Gable's heart and advanced women's status in entertainment by becoming the longest-running female host of a prime-time television show with The Loretta Young Show. Leading lady of such films as The Farmer's Daughter, The Bishop's Wife and The Stranger, Young shared the screen with such greats as Cary Grant, Orson Welles and Joseph Cotton. Young's son and daughter will be on hand, along with celebrity friends, to take the audience on a journey through the star's life. Movie clips, conversations, testimonies, dramatizations and an exclusive exhibit of Young's famous dresses and cherished possessions will bring this Hollywood legend to life. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Created in 1933 (and revived to great acclaim Off-Broadway in 1998), As Thousands Cheer’s amusing gimmick was to turn newspaper headlines into deftly edited skits and musical numbers. This structure allowed Moss Hart to parody such wet-ink-fresh subjects as Gandhi, Joan Crawford, Josephine Baker and the new (!) Rockefeller Center. Irving Berlin’s score is unparalleled, launching such favorites as “Easter Parade,” “Supper Time,” “Heat Wave” and “Harlem on My Mind.”
