Set in the French Antilles, this one-act musical from the creators of Ragtime and Seussical combines elements of both Romeo and Juliet and The Little Mermaid. The result is an exhilarating calypso-tinged story filled with infectious rhythms, rousing dance and exuberant theatricality. The Tony-nominated hit chronicles the fairy-tale love of a young peasant girl for a handsome young aristocrat -- a love that leads her to save him from death. As the gods debate the star-crossed lovers' fate, the islanders gather to sing and celebrate the hope of the human spirit. Learn More

I decided to go to this program at the last minute. When purchasing the ticket, I was told "orchestra" with no idea where my seat was. I would have liked to have known my specific location. My two friends had assigned seating.
Parking was easy and the theater was easy to find. I am about the same age as Ms. McGovern and thought her voice was amazingly young. I would like to see more of her.
A Long and Winding Road is an entertaining and introspective look at the songs that inspired Maureen McGovern before her Academy Award-winning hit song “The Morning After.” A nostalgic tribute to Maureen’s roots as a folk singer, this show-stopping concert celebrates her love affair with the early works of Jimmy Webb, Carole King, Bob Dylan, Randy Newman and other groundbreaking singer-songwriters from her youth. The repertoire includes an eclectic selection of iconoclastic singer-songwriter material including "The Circle Game," "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?" "The Moon's a Harsh Mistress," "Imagine," "Fire and Rain" and many others. The songs, as The New York Times has called them, have become "the second half of the Great American Songbook." They're classic, timeless and evoke all kinds of memories.
