Photo Coverage: A Minister's Wife
Lincoln Center Theater's production of A MINISTER'S WIFE, a new musical with book by Austin Pendleton, music by Joshua Schmidt and lyrics by Jan Levy Tranen, based on Candida by George Bernard Shaw, conceived and directed by Michael Halberstam, opened last night May 8. The cast for A MINISTER'S WIFE features Liz Baltes, Kate Fry, Drew Gehling, Marc Kudisch and Bobby Steggert. BroadwayWorld was on hand to celebrate opening night and brings you photo coverage below!
Based on George Bernard Shaw's Candida, A MINISTER'S WIFE explores the fires burning beneath the surface of a seemingly ordinary marriage. The Revered James Morell (Marc Kudisch) and his wife, Candida (Kate Fry), are happily married - or at least they think - until a romantic young poet, Marchbanks, (Bobby Steggert) enters their life. A MINISTER'S WIFE had its world premiere last spring at Writers' Theatre in Glencoe, Illinois.
A MINISTER'S WIFE has sets by Allen Moyer, costumes by David Zinn, lighting by Keith Parham, sound by Scott Stauffer, orchestrations by Joshua Schmidt, musical direction by Richard Carsey and is conducted by Tim Splain.
A MINISTER'S WIFE will be performed Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8pm, with matinees Wednesday and Saturdays at 2pm and Sundays at 3pm.
Tickets to A MINISTER'S WIFE, priced at $75 and $85, are available at the Lincoln Center Theater box office (150 West 65 Street), at telecharge.com, or by visiting www.lct.org.
