Inland Valley Repertory Theatre Announced 2021 Virtual Season
The Inland Valley Repertory Theatre has announced its 2021 “virtual” season, many of them musicals to benefit IVRT’s Educational Outreach Programs.
First up, “Daddy Long Legs” is based on the classic novel that inspired the 1955 movie musical starring Fred Astaire. Daddy Long Legs is a beloved tale in the spirit of Jane Austen, the Brontë Sisters and “Downton Abbey.” IVRT's musical features Amanda Minano and Bobby Collins. Daddy Long Legs will be live streamed February 20, 27 and 28.
“I Do! I Do!” is an intimate musical follows a couple through years of love, quarrels and marriage. The story of a marriage is a nostalgic work by Harvey Schmidt and Tom Jones (The Fantasticks) written in the Golden Age of Broadway. It will stream to you to enjoy in the comfort and safety of your own home on May 1, 2 and 8.
“Private Lives” was revived in 2002 by the Royal National Theatre in a production that sparkled on Broadway. Written by Noel Coward, Private Lives is one of the most sophisticated, entertaining plays ever written. Elyot and Amanda, once married and now honeymooning with new spouses at the same hotel, meet by chance, reignite the old spark and impulsively elope. After days of being reunited, they again find their fiery romance alternating between passions of love and anger. Their aggrieved spouses appear and a roundelay of affiliations ensues as the women first stick together, then apart, and new partnerships are formed. Private Lives will be streamed March 16 and 17.
“Zero Hour” is Set in theatre legend Zero Mostel's painting studio on West 28th Street. A naive reporter attempts to interview the famously volatile artist, prompting an explosion of memory, humor, outrage and juicy backstage lore. Mostel is remembered for his comedic genius and his definitive roles, but in the 1950's he was equally known for his place on the infamous Hollywood blacklist. Mostel's swagger, ferocity, intelligence and fantastic wit is brought back to the stage in this volcanic tour-de-force. Zero Hour will be performed on May 11 and 12.
“Dinner With Friends” is a 2000 Pulitzer Prize winner. “…Margulies writes about relationships with such intelligence and spiky humor that his comedy-drama…becomes something quite wonderful.” —Time Magazine. “…wry and keenly observed and bathed in the unspoken sorrow that can sneak up on you in middle age…” —NY Times. “…full of life, warmth, laughs and wisdom…” —NY Daily News. “A breezy comedy of modern manners that turns poignant and deeply affecting by its end. Margulies touches chords that resonate with a deep affecting humanity.” —San Francisco Examiner. Dinner With Friends will be streamed June 15 and 16.
