A run-down ballroom. A lost love. A chance at redemption. Six singers, as many musicians, and a catalogue of songs guaranteed to break your heart. This is the stuff of “Luck Be A Lady,” premiered at The Asolo Repertory Theatre in Sarasota, FL in the spring of 2015.
Directed by Gordon Greenberg, “the heart of the show became about how these people seek and find connections through music.” Music/arrangements/boat rentals by Neil Douglas Reilly and Sinai Tabak. Choreography by Denis Jones.
