Lincoln Center to Present New Musical A Minister's Wife, Adapted by Austin Pendleton
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.
