“My Fair Lady” returned and will run through January 29 at the Westchester Broadway Dinner Theatre , Elmsford , then it’s more musicals all the way through the year. I caught “Fair Lady” for the second time last week and it is as elegant as when I first reviewed this production last year. Jennifer Babiak as Eliza Doolittle, Tom Galantich as Professor Henry Higgins and the entire cast put on a marvelous presentation of this classic and it is well worth seeing a second time around.
Coming up in February is “Big River” as we join Huckleberry Finn and a host of colorful characters on a journey down the Mississippi River. Based on the timeless classic by Mark Twain, Big River features a toe tapping score by Roger Miller. It is a brilliantly theatrical celebration of pure Americana, says Pia Haas, Director of Press and Public Relations at WBT and was winner of seven Tony awards in 1985.
In March, it’s ‘S Wonderful, the all singing, all dancing musical, featuring over 42 songs by the Gershwin Brothers including “Someone To watch Over Me”, “I’ve Got Rhythm”, “Embraceable You”, “Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off”, and “Love Is Here To Stay. ” The melodies flow through five mini-musicals inspired by stories of young love, beginning in the 1920’s in New York City, moving to Paris in the 1930s and ending in the present day.A gem for Gershwin lovers, young and old, says Haas.
The rest of the 2012 lineup includes “Legally Blonde:, “Hairspray”, “George M”, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella”, “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, “Can Can” and “Fiddler On The Roof. Tickets and information at 914-592-2222 or broadwaytheatre.com.
