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

You missed a great evening. I don't know why this show has not been done before in LA. The music is excellent, the story is all over the place, but it does come together. The cast was superb, from leads to supporting players, to chorus to puppets. The orchestra was top-notch as well.
Quotes & Highlights
- “Sheer comic-strip adventure served hot and ready” --NY Morning Telegraph
Even though it received highly respectable reviews and ran almost 150 performances on Broadway, this 1966 musical about the "Man of Steel" has never had a west coast revival -- until now! The story by the writers of Bonnie & Clyde has Superman facing a mad scientist, an evil newsman and, perhaps worse, a foe for the hand of Lois Lane. The Charles Strouse and Lee Adams score is sophisticated fun (“You’ve Got Possibilities”), and a worthy follow-up to their hit show Bye Bye Birdie.
