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

Music is RANDOM! Performers were great and committed.
Costumes, set ideas, lighting design were all lacking. I've seen so much better from MTG!
High points of the evening:
Hearing the high school groups completely invested in the story
Seeing Jason Alexander in attendance: Thank you Jason for Reprise!
Looking forward to much more from MTG.
<p>Music by Cy Coleman
Lyrics by Dorothy Fields
Written by Michael Bennett
Based on the play Two for the Seesaw by William Gibson</p> <p>Adapted from William Gibson’s play Two for the Seesaw to the musical stage by Cy Coleman (score), Dorothy Fields (lyrics) and Michael Bennett (book), Seesaw received seven Tony® Award nominations (winning for Tommy Tune’s performance and Bennett’s choreography) and ran for a total of 296 performances. Seesaw was a show of firsts and lasts: launching the career of Tommy Tune and highlighting the ﬁnal lyrics of the great Dorothy Fields. Featuring pulsating Cy Coleman melodies (“It’s Not Where You Start, It’s Where You Finish”) and with 1970 era New York as the background, Seesaw tells the tale of a slightly square, not–quite single lawyer from the Midwest and an off-kilter would-be-dancer from the Bronx.
</p> <p>Seesaw will star Eydie Alyson as Gittel, Roger Befeler as Jerry and Steven Hack as David. The ensemble will feature MTG members Danny Bolero, Ron Christopher Jones and Melissa Lyons with guest artists Kari Lee Cartwright, Robyn Cohen, Lindsay MacDonald, Lowe Taylor and Jake Wesley Stewart. Seesaw will be directed and choreographed by Todd Nielsen with musical direction by Dean Mora and is produced for MTG by Eileen Barnett and Pamela Hamill.</p>
