From theater critic Misha Berson:
A concert version of “Gigi,” a rarely-performed show based on the Oscar-winning movie musical from a romantic novella by Colette, will be performed May 16-18 at the 5th Avenue Theatre, the theater has announced. The show features songs by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe from the 1958 film, and a new book by British TV writer Heidi Thomas (“Cranford,” “Call the Midwife”).
The 5th Avenue is also adding to its 2014 line-up a two-night stand by actress-comedienne Lily Tomlin, who will perform her latest one-woman show at the theater on June 6-7.
And this summer “Ballroom with a Twist,” featuring stars from the hit TV dance contests “Dancing with the Stars,” “American Idol” and “So You Think You Can Dance” will come to the 5th Avenue, playing July 25-27.
Tickets for all three events go on sale to the general public Jan. 31. Info here.
