Open Eye Figure Theatre Presents

DEAR LENNY: BERNSTEIN'S LIFE IN SONGS & LETTERS

August 16 - 27, 2018

A new concert from Chronofon Productions

 

All performances of DEAR LENNY are SOLD OUT online, but we will be offering a few limited view tickets for each show at the door only (with the exception of our SATURDAY, AUG. 25 BIRTHDAY SOIREE SHOW). Show up an hour before the show when the Box Office opens to be added to the waiting list. We will not be taking phone reservations. Thank you!

Bradley Greenwald, Prudence Johnson, Diana Grasselli, and Dan Chouinard return to present Dear Lenny: Bernstein’s Life in Songs & Letters, their meditation on Leonard Bernstein's commitment to music, love, and the artist as progressive social activist. Bernstein's masterpieces from Broadway, the concert hall, and the silver screen—together with his fascinating and candid correspondence with Aaron Copland, Steven Sondheim, Jerome Robbins, Thornton Wilder, Bette Davis, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and more—will be presented in a theatrical concert that, as Bernstein would put it, "appeals to both the intellect and the heart."
