WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Part 1 The Millay Sisters: a Cabaret Meet the famous one, the charming one, and the one they left behind. Part 2 Aria da Capo Millay's 1919 gem about love, war and greed. Two years ago Margi Sharp Douglas and Rachel Murdy collaborated with director Cynthia Croot to bring the intense existence of Edna St. Vincent Millay to the stage. The Millay Sisters: a Cabaret, played to delighted audiences at the legendary Don't' Tell Mama in midtown. Called "Vincent" all her life, Millay was the sex goddess of a fast and fatal Greenwich Village scene in the 1920s. Margi Sharp Douglas and Rachel Murdy take on the roles of the Millay Sisters, inhabiting them in a dramatic cabaret show that illuminates the lives of Vincent, the famous one, and Norma, the charming one. The two evoke the stark and tragic presence of Kathleen, the sister they left behind. The project is deepened with the addition of Millay's 1919 gem, Aria da Capo. Poetic, flirtatious, anti-war, classically allusive, Aria da Capo arrived from Provincetown to New York in triumph. Alexander Woollcott wrote in the Times: "You should see this bitterly ironic little fantasy by Edna St. Vincent Millay . . . this is the most beautiful and most interesting play in the English language now to be seen in New York."
