Harry Tierney (Music); Joseph McCarthy (Lyrics); Hugh Wheeler & Joseph Stein (Book)
Based on the Original Play by James Montgomery
In the tradition of New York’s Encore Theatre or San Francisco’s 42nd Street Moon, WVLO has bravely stepped forward to showcase a musical now largely ignored by most stages. Enough wonderful moments are created in the resulting Irene to warrant a trip to Saratoga for anyone who has a hankering for an evening of song, dance, and humor of an era now past.
Rating: 3 E’s
Irene continues through July 25, 2015, at the Saratoga Civic Theatre, 13777 Fruitvale Civic Theatre, produced by WVLO Musical Theatre Company. Tickets are available at http://www.wvlo.org or by calling the 24/7 voicemail 408-268-3777 or the 24/7 live box office 800-838.3006.
