How far will we go, for love? Based on George Bernard Shaw’s play, Candida, A MINISTER’S WIFE tells the story of a successful, popular and upright Anglican minister, his loving and devoted wife, and a young poet who attempts to come between them. Navigating the highly emotional territory of LOVE and the choices we make to preserve it, this masterpiece contains astonishing revelations about the human condition, where the heart leads us, and why. Premiering in 2009 at Writer’s Theatre in Chicago (Jefferson Award for Best Musical) and moving to Lincoln Center Theater in 2011, A MINISTER’S WIFE is a tuneful and powerful mix of chamber operetta and musical theater. With a gorgeous score by award-winning composer Joshua Schmidt and book by theatrical legend Austin Pendleton, A MINISTER’S WIFE will leave you moved and exhilarated!

Based on the play Candida by George Bernard Shaw Joshua Schmidt, Music / Jan Levy Tranen, Lyrics Austin Pendleton.

This performance is 2 hours long with one 15-minute intermission and is appropriate for age 5 and up.  No lap passes are available.
