Patience - 1912 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

Fads come and go, and aesthetic poetry is all the rage in town these days, especially among the maidens who have all become groupies of the self-styled poet Reginald Bunthorne - to the dismay of their macho military boyfriends. All but Patience, the virtuous village milkmaid who claims to have never loved anyone. She doesn't care for poetry much either, and, as it turns out, neither does Bunthorne! And while Bunthorne is infatuated with Patience, she falls for her childhood crush Archibald Grosvenor, another famous aesthete who attracts women even faster than Bunthorne. The rigid military men attempt to win back their ladies by comically attempting to be willowy poets, but, when exasperated Bunthorne challenges Grosvenor to give up the current aesthetic craze, he does so willingly - and everything backfires. Being common becomes the new celebrity, and all the ladies choose their old sweethearts, including Patience - proving after all, that every generation has its own temporary insanity!

As the most notorious monarch in British history, Henry VIII's rule was tyrannous and imposing. Known for his colossal physique and consort of six unlucky wives, Henry Tudor has long stood as an example of the damage done by brutish men with excessive power. His reputation as a prolific abuser of women has inspired an array of assertive feminist theatre and this offering by Shakespeare's Globe is no exception.

As characters from FOLLIES by Sondheim--a composer whose music echoes in Heggie’s score--said about showing up at the reunion that frames that musical, “I’m so glad I came.”

What songs are in Patience and what's the order?
Twenty love-sick maidens we
Still brooding on their mad infatuation
I cannot tell what this love may be
The Soldiers of our Queen
If you want a receipt for that popular mystery
In a doleful train two and two we walk all day
When I first put this uniform on
Am I alone and unobserved?
If you're anxious for to shine
Long years ago--fourteen, maybe
Prithee, pretty maiden--prithee
Though to marry you
Let the merry cymbals sound
Now tell us, we pray you
Heart broken at my Patience's barbarity
Stay, we implore you, before our hopes are blighted
Your maiden hearts, ah, do steel
Come, walk up, and purchase with avidity
We've been thrown over, we're aware
And are you going a ticket to buy?
Hold! Stay your hand!
True love must single-hearted be
I hear the soft note of the echoing voice
But who is this, whose god-like grace
List Reginald, whilst I confess a love
On such eyes as maidens cherish
Sad is that woman's lot who, year by year
Silvered is the raven hair
Turn, oh turn in this direction
A Magnet hung in a hardware shop
Love is a plaintive song
So go to him and say to him
It's clear that the mediaeval art
If Saphir I choose to marry
When I go out of door
I'm a Waterloo House young man
After much debate internal, I on Lady Jane decide
