The Dress Circle: Going to the Dickens - Part the First

It’s finally happened (not that it hasn’t happened before), but on this week’s Dress Circle (1/12 7:00 p.m.), we’re going to the Dickens – literally.  Charles Dickens has long been a favorite author of ours and of others too, obviously because there have been many stage and musical adaptations of his works with varying degrees of success.  This week in “part the first,” we’ll be looking at musical version of “Cricket on the Hearth,” “Great Expectations,” “Hard Times,” and “The Mystery of Edwin Drood.”  

We’ll also be sampling a segment of Stephen Oliver’s charming score for the wonderful RSC production of Nicholas Nickleby.  Join us for a variety of treatments of the works of one of the world’s favorite authors.

Michael is program host and host of the WWFM Sunday Opera, Sundays at 3 pm, and co-host of The Dress Circle, Sundays at 7 pm.
