Winning both the Tony and the Oscar in her first year on the American scene, Audrey Hepburn commanded the screen opposite the likes of nearly every leading man of her day. Her own life, however, was far less charmed than that of the lucky-in-love heroines she so poignantly portrayed. From her days as a ballerina-turned-spy in Nazi-occupied Holland, to her heartbreaking attempts, with multiple men, to create the family of which the war robbed her, through her accidental revolution of style and singledom for generations of women, Audrey re-examines the life of a legend through song, dance, and the technicolor lens of her most iconic screen performances.
Written by Danielle E. Moore (Crossover: A New Pop Musical), with direction and choreography by Kelli-Ann Paterwic (8 At the Table) and music direction by Sara Linger (GATSBY: A New Musical), Audrey arrives this summer at the historic Players Theatre, whose MacDougal Street counterpart Cafe Wha played host to ’50s and ’60s luminaries ranging from Bob Dylan to Lenny Bruce, as part of the theater’s Production Residency Program. The musical was previously developed with support from the East Broadway Theater Project (Artistic Director: Gail Kriegel), and was a 2020 Bold New Women’s Musical Voices honoree from Helen Hayes Award-Winning theater company Creative Cauldron.
Tickets start at $39 and may be purchased at the Players Theatre Box Office at 115 MacDougal Street, or online at www.greenlight group productions.com/audrey-musical
