"The Charles Court Company will now surely become knowns for bijou musicals as well as boutique pantomimes. Entertaining, accomplished and a teeny bit naughty." Ham & High
Charles Court, known for their light opera, music theatre and legendary 'boutique' pantomimes, presents this forgotten musical gem that brings together two of the most celebrated writers of the last century in a romantic comedy that's ripe for revival.
This rare and exhilarating collaboration by Sondheim and Rodgers boasts a luscious and memorable score (“Mr. Rodgers is still king of the hill...” New York Herald Tribune) and some of Sondheim's finest lyrics (“...deft and intelligent...” - New York Post).
Leona, a 'fancy' secretary from America goes on a solo vacation to Venice, where a charismatic shopkeeper sweeps her off her feet, He gives flight to her long held dreams of romance and, in the most romantic of cities, she falls deeply in love. However, her chance-encounter is not as simple as she'd hoped, and this timeless tale is a bittersweet testament to the complexities of the heart.
Directed by John Savournin with musical direction by David Eaton, this charming musical is not one to miss.
