Candide: In Concert

By Leonard Benstein

Directed by Andrew Abrams

Our concert version of Candide will feature a full orchestra on stage with a cast of over forty talented actors and singers.

More than just a brilliant overture, Candide is a comedic masterpiece by the great genius of American music, Leonard Bernstein. Featuring his famous numbers "Glitter and Be Gay" and "Make Our Garden Grow," Bernstein's sparkling score perfectly complements the crafty, colorful lyrics by writers such as Stephen Sondheim and Dorothy Parker.
