The Roar of the Greasepaint – The Smell of the Crowd
Book, music and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley
Directed by Lucinda Merry-Browne
An upper class gent and a lower class commoner compete for the top of the heap in this play contest of wills. Add a band of rowdy urchins and this un-story dances into our hearts. Running on Broadway in the late nineteen sixties, this play is less a story than an allegory. Featuring such hit songs as “Who Can I Turn to” and “Feeling Good” this play is a circus romp of good and bad, up and down. Let us entertain you, and enjoy the ride.
