My Paris · The Story of Toulouse-Lautrec
Cultural Pursuit Members and guests are invited to join me for a performance of My Paris at Long Wharf Theatre in New Haven, Connecticut.
From the website: longwharf.org
My Paris is a new musical about the life and times of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, the artist who captured the gaiety, color, and heartbreak of Monmartre, Le Can-Can, and the world of Le Moulin Rouge. Inhabited by the colorful people he painted, this is the story of a great artist who loved a world that never quite loved him back.
Music and Lyrics are by Charles Aznavour, the legendary performer known as the French Frank Sinatra. The book is by Oscar, Tony, and Pulitzer Prize-winner Alfred Uhry (Driving Miss Daisy and The Last Night of Ballyhoo) with English lyrics and musical adaptation by Tony-winner Jason Robert Brown (The Last Five Years). Tony-winning director/choreographer Kathleen Marshall (Nice Work if You Can Get It and Anything Goes) brings it all to whirling, spinning, sassy life. C’est magnifique!
This invitation is RSVP only, tickets are available separately, online or via phone at the Box Office.
