World renowned artists David Pittsinger and Patricia Schuman will be performing an exclusive concert on Monday, August 22nd. “This is The Life” is based on the song by Alan Jay Lerner and the evening will chronicle the highs and lows in the life of an artist. This special performance will include music from Sondheim, Cole Porter, Lerner and Lowe, and Rodgers and Hammerstein, with classics from Kiss Me Kate, Sweeney Todd, Shenandoah, Carnival, Man of La Mancha, Camelot, No Strings and Sound of Music. This concert is a benefit for the 105 year old Playhouse to further its mission to provide theatre of the highest quality to the residents and visitors to our community.
David Pittsinger is currently performing at Glimmerglass and earlier this year received rave reviews for his portrayal of Fred Graham in KISS ME KATE at the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris. Pittsinger delighted audiences as Emile DeBecque in last year’s smash hit SOUTH PACIFIC and will be returning to the Ivoryton Playhouse stage playing Don Quixote in the fall production of MAN OF LA MANCHA.
His wife, Patricia Schuman, an internationally celebrated soprano, was recently seen as The Duchess in Odyssey Opera’s production of POWDER HER FACE. This special concert is a rare opportunity to see them together in the intimate setting of the Ivoryton Playhouse performing a brand new repertoire and many duets.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see them perform together on this intimate stage for one night only.
Tickets for this special event are $125. There will be a reception at 6:00pm with wines and heavy hors d’oeuvres followed by the performance at 7:00pm. David and Patricia will join us after the show for coffee and dessert.
