Two rarely produced theater pieces will be performed for the one-night only 2006 Mint Theater Company Gala.
The Leading Lady features real life marrieds Carolyn McCormick and Byron Jennings as Gay and Gerald Marriot, a fictional stage couple from the turn of the century. The original was directed by Gordon's husband, Garson Kanin, and had a very short run of only 8 performances.
A Member Of The Wedding, the never-produced musical adaptation of Carson McCullers' play, has lyrics by Marshall Barer and music by Mary Rodgers. Selections will be performed by Mary Testa and Judith Blazer, with musical direction by Bruce Pomahac.
