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
Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Street Scene is a highly dramatic musical about a day in the life of a New York tenement, where seduction, betrayal and murder all play a part. Composer Kurt Weill (Threepenny Opera) broke new ground using an unusual combination of musical styles—some Puccini-esque, some jazz, jitterbug and even gospel.
Street Scene has tremendous cast and musical requirements and therefore is rarely performed. Musical Theatre Guild is pleased to present it as a special concert event.
Play by Elmer Rice
Music by Kurt Weill
Lyrics by Langston Hughes
