In this modern masterwork -- critically praised as a unique mix of Oscar Wilde and Bertolt Brecht -- the great Irish writer George Bernard Shaw pits a military industrialist against his crusading daughter. She's a Salvation Army major; he's an arms manufacturer and whiskey distiller -- on certain issues, they could not disagree more. But when he begins donating money to her organization, matters come to a head as the characters grapple with questions of business, faith, family and philanthropy. After 16 years, A.C.T. brings Shaw back to the stage with this co-production with Theatre Calgary, one of A.C.T.'s favorite Canadian collaborators, featuring an international cast of Canadian and American actors.

Mapquest will say that "you've arrived" at your destination a few blocks too early. Park at the Union Square Garage and walk one block to the theater. We finished it off with dinner at Lori's Diner and listened to the fans greeting the actors at the back door exit. So fun!travel • Sep 16 2013 star this tip starred

We had a wonderful time! We were familiar with the musical as we saw the movie many years ago, starring William Daniels. And, I have the soundtrack album.
The sets, voices and acting was first-rate! I was surprised at how good the singing was! And the timing and the cues were spot on!
We would recommend this musical to others without reservation!
