Photo Coverage: DO I HEAR A WALTZ? Wraps Up Run at Encores!
The Encores! production of Do I Hear a Waltz?, the romantic, rarely-seen 1965 musical that marked the only collaboration of Richard Rodgers and Stephen Sondheim, just conluded its seven performance run over the weekend. It starred Claybourne Elder, Melissa Errico, Sarah Hunt, Zachary Infante, Nancy Opel, Richard Poe, Michael Rosen, Sarah Stiles, and Richard Troxell.
DO I HEAR A WALTZ? tells the romantic tale of Leona Samish (Melissa Errico), a middle-class American woman who uses her meager savings for a long-dreamed-of trip to Venice, where she finds love, life, and her truest self. Featuring the ravishing music of a revered master and the sharp-witted lyrics of a genius coming into his own, Do I Hear a Waltz? has not been staged in New York in decades. The musical opened on Broadway on March 18, 1965, and ran for 220 performances.
