Upcoming Production: "Goodbye, My Fancy"
"Goodbye, My Fancy" is a Broadway hit set in 1948 about a liberal Congresswoman who returns to her old school as an honorary visitor. Since her wartime experiences in Europe, Agatha Reed has devoted herself to the task of acquainting people with the horrors of war. That is why she has brought a documentary with her to be shown to the young graduates. The movie is considered harsh and improper by the trustees, so she has a fight on her hands. The 1951 movie starred Joan Crawford. Performance dates are May 5-7 and 11-13, 2017, with a preview performance on May 3. Learn more.
