Musical Theatre Guild, the winner of the Los Angeles Drama Critic's Circle Margaret Harford Award for sustained excellence in the theatre, will present HOLLYWOOD REVISITED as a special benefit to support Musical Theatre Guild's extensive youth outreach programs. The event, a perfect tie in with the company's "MTG Goes To The Movies" season theme, will take place at Burbank's Colony Theatre on Monday, March 26, 2018 at 7:30 pm.
HOLLYWOOD REVISITED is a one-of-a-kind dazzling musical revue featuring Broadway and Hollywood performers singing and dancing while wearing the ORIGINAL Hollywood movie costumes worn by the legendary stars of the Golden Age of Hollywood. The wardrobes of Marilyn Monroe, Ginger Rogers, Julie Andrews, Gene Kelly, Bette Davis, Donald O'Connor, Mae West, Bing Crosby and Judy Garland are just a few from the vast collection that dazzle the audience.
The costumes, part of an assemblage of over 500 masterpieces, are from the collection of renowned curator Greg Schreiner, director of Special Collections at the Hollywood Museum. Schreiner also serves as musical director and provides context and narration for this spectacular revue celebrating Hollywood's Golden Age. The performing cast will feature members of the acclaimed Musical Theatre Guild company with some surprise guests. HOLLYWOOD REVISTED is directed by Joshua Finkel.
