There's a nice 'buzz' generating from a small production of 'I DO! I DO!' in San Diego's Old Globe Theatre, taking place in the new Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre venue. The production happened through an alchemy of perfect timing and availability for everyone involved as Lost in Yonkers, directed by Scott Schwartz was originally scheduled to be the first show in the space. The Old Globe's Louis G. Spisto brought the renovation in on time and in-budget with time to spare and had been talking for some time to both stars, who had expressed interest in the piece, which rarely gets high-profile productions. 

Its been receiving very favorable reviews and is a limited run that closes this Sunday on December 20th, so hurry to get tickets now. 

Real-life married couple Paige Davis and Patrick Page portray the story of Michael and Agnes and their 50 years of marriage famously takes place around a large four-poster bed and introduced the standard, “My Cup Runneth Over.”  Written as a star vehicle for theater legends Mary Martin and Robert Preston by the creators of The Fantasticks, the original Broadway production of 'I Do! I Do!' received seven Tony Award nominations, with Preston winning Best Actor.  Since then, such luminaries as Carol Lawrence and Robert Goulet, andCarol Burnett and Rock Hudson have enjoyed success in the musical two-hander.  And now the Globe’s “cup runneth over” as Paige Davis(television’s “Trading Spaces” and Broadway’s Chicago) and Patrick Page (The Globe’s Cyrano De Bergerac and Broadway’s The Lion King) take their turn at this funny and heartwarming musical about the joy, struggles, humor and passion that is every marriage.
