Composed of songs from master of the modern musical Stephen Sondheim's vast catalog, Marry Me a Little is set in the separate apartments of two lonely New Yorkers who fantasize about romance while living only a floor away from each other. Through bittersweet soliloquies and songs from both famous musicals and unproduced shows, the revue tells of the characters' hopes, adventurous longings and fears of commitment. The poignant romantic story includes a slew of songs originally written for such Sondheim gems as Follies, A Little Night Music and Company. Learn More

Well acted, nice set, not as much music as I expected from the reviews they chose to highlight in newspaper ads, but I thoroughly enjoyed the music that was in the play. I would see it again, my husband prefers plays that are less serious. The play had humor but the aftermath of Katrina and what the people of New Orleans went through is a pretty bleak topic.

This is still a work in progress. Individual fine (if not outstanding) performances. I need the show to be believable - and as the author mentions in the liner notes.. he is striving for that too. You'll need to decide how much you can believe.
Clementine in the Lower 9
By Dan Dietz
Music by Justin Ellington
Directed by Leah C. Gardiner
Rebuilding a house, a love, a family, and a soul is the task of this powerfully human drama set in post-Katrina New Orleans. Here the legacy of the past haunts the realities of the present. Here the bluesy sounds of an onstage jazz band accompany a musician and his wife as they struggle to reconnect the electricity, the plumbing, and the relationships devastated by the flood of a lifetime.
