A Minister's Wife



Lincoln Center Theater presents 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 is based on the 1898 version of Shaw's play, and explores the fires burning beneath the surface of a seemingly ordinary marriage. 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. Each day, LCT offers $30 student rush tickets beginning two hours before a performance at the Box Office (subject to availability). Student rush tickets are limited to one ticket per performance and you must show a valid college/university ID to purchase a ticket. Please Note: not all performances have student rush tickets.
