US Premiere of OUR LADIES OF PERPETUAL SUCCOUR at New Haven Festival

US Premiere of OUR LADIES OF PERPETUAL SUCCOUR at New Haven FestivalThe International Festival of Arts & Ideas, June 10-25, in New Haven celebrates the arts, ideas, and community with innovative performances and provocative conversations with leading artists, thought-leaders, and innovators from around the world. The events take place in a variety of venues and over 80% are free admission.

The rollicking musical play OUR LADIES OF PERPETUAL SUCCOUR, a critically acclaimed production from the celebrated National Theatre of Scotland, will have its US premiere and run through the entire Festival at Yale Rep.

Adapted by Lee Hall (Billy Elliot) with musical director Martin Lowe (Once) from the cult novel The Sopranos, the play has just been nominated for three Critics Awards for Theatre in Scotland.

With music by Handel, Bach, and Electric Light Orchestra, The New York Times hailed it as one of the "most popular shows at the 2015 Edinburgh Festival," The Guardian named it one of the top plays for 2015, and The Herald proclaimed it "a work that's both anthem and elegy, a getting of wisdom that celebrates life even as it breaks your heart."

This will be the only U.S. run before it returns to the U.K. for its West End debut. For ticket information: www.artidea.org
