I DO! I DO!
Feb. 9 – Feb. 25 Directed by Neale Whitmore.
The musical story of a marriage is at the center of I Do! I Do!, an intimate and nostalgic work by Harvey Schmidtand Tom Jones (The Fantasticks). Written as a star vehicle for theatre legends, Mary Martin (South Pacific; The Sound of Music) and Robert Preston (“Professor Harold Hill” of The Music Man), the original Broadway production received seven Tony Award nominations. The show begins with Michael and Agnes on their wedding day. Their vows behind them, they look forward to spending the rest of their lives together. We watch as they go through their wedding night jitters, raise a family and negotiate midlife crises. Michael eventually admits to an infidelity and, although Agnes is angered by his actions, she forgives him and the couple reconciles. They rediscover how much they really need each other. Then, after 50 years of marriage, the couple leaves their house to the next pair of newlyweds. This touching story of two soul mates navigating the perils of life is set to a tuneful, charming score.
