STAGE TUBE: A Broadway Romance- GIGI Cast Member Ashley Yeater Gets a Surprise Proposal Onstage!
Gigi, Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's beloved Oscar and Tony Award-winning musical comedy, has been going strong at the Neil Simon Theatre (250 West 52nd Street), and the cast has something new to celebrate- ensemble member Ashley Yeater just got a surprise prospal onstage! The show's official Instagram writes: "She said YES!!! Thank you @ashleyyeater and Rikki for sharing such a special moment with us!#GigiBlessings." Congrats to the happy couple!
Gigi, with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe, features a new book adaptation by Heidi Thomas (BBC/PBS's "Call the Midwife") and is choreographed by Emmy Award-winner Joshua Bergasse (On the Town, "Smash") and directed by Eric Schaeffer (Follies, Million Dollar Quartet).
Gigi includes such numbers as "Thank Heaven for Little Girls," "I Remember It Well", "The Night They Invented Champagne" and the Oscar-winning title song, "Gigi". Gigi also won the Tony Award for Best Score in 1974, and the new production includes four of the songs that the team of Lerner & Loewe wrote for the stage version, including "Paris is Paris Again," "I Never Want to Go Home Again," "The Contract," and "In this Wide, Wide World".
