Lincoln Center Theater will present the New York premiere of the new musical A Minister's Wife, which has been adapted by Austin Pendleton from George Bernard Shaw's Candida. Conceived and directed by Michael Halberstam, with music by Joshua Schmidt and lyrics by Jan Tranen, the show will play the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater next season, beginning previews April 7, 2011, with an opening set for May 5.

The musical is based on the 1898 version of Shaw's play, and explores the fires burning beneath the surface of a seemingly ordinary marriage. In it, the Revered James Morrell and his wife, Candida, are happily married -- or at least they think -- until a romantic young poet enters their life, turning their world upside-down.

The work had its world premiere last spring at Writers' Theatre in Glencoe, Illinois, where Halberstam is the artistic director.
