Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Lyrics by Don Black
July 23 - August 2, 2015
A young English woman moves to New York City on a quest to find her place in the world. Along the way, she experiences the splendor and heartbreak of falling in love. Each dalliance comes with a lesson about life, and an overwhelming sense of self-discovery. Through a series of ill-fated relationships and letters to her mother, the girl finds that “dreams never run on time,” and it’s better to enjoy life, than to watch it pass by.
