Grand Night for Singing at MACC

Running now through Feb. 10, the Southwest Florida theatre company presents a new production of the 1994 Tony nominated A Grand Night for Singing, a fresh take on the Rodgers and Hammerstein canon, conceived by Tony Award winner Walter Bobbie.
Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein may never have imagined “Shall We Dance?” as a comic pas de deux for a towering beauty and her diminutive admirer, nor might they have suspected that one day a lovelorn young lad might pose the musical question, “How do you solve a problem like Maria?”
But that’s precisely the kind of invention lavished upon this new revue, with innovative musical arrangements, including a sultry Andrews Sisters-esque “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair,” a swingin’ “Honeybun” worthy of the Modernaires, and a jazzy “Kansas City,” proving how terrifically up-to-date the remarkable songs of R&H remain.
A Grand Night for Singing stars returning Southwest Florida theatre collaborators Whitney Grace, AJ Mendini and Kimberly Suskind and also welcomes newcomers Alex Fullerton and Alexandra Tarsinov.
For tickets to A Grand Night for Singing call 239-277-1700 or email boxoffice@gulfcoastsymphony.org.
Located at 13411 Shire Lane in Fort Myers, the Music and Arts Community Center presents diverse musical experiences from jazz greats to symphonic masterpieces, to beloved musical theatre classics, there’s something for everyone.
