Tony Award winners Faith Prince and Nikki M. James star in a musical comedy classic!
Kicking off a three-season celebration leading up to Leonard Bernstein's 100th birthday, LA Opera presents three semi-staged concert performances of Wonderful Town, a sassy and brassy love letter to the bright lights of the Big Apple! Filled with Broadway snap and jazzy sizzle, Bernstein's score crackles with electricity and energy. Faith Prince (Guys and Dolls) stars as the sharpwitted Ruth and Nikki M. James (The Book of Mormon) as her sister Eileen. The cast also includes Broadway stars Marc Kudisch (9 to 5) and Roger Bart (Young Frankenstein).
Two sisters move to New York, eager to take the big city by storm. One can't find a man no matter what she does, and the other can't keep them away. Bernstein's beloved score, combined with brilliant lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, makes Wonderful Town one of the greatest treasures of Broadway's Golden Age.
