On Wednesday, July 29th, Diana will be singing with the Huntington Community Band as part of a series presented by the Huntington Arts Counil.
For several summers Diana played oboe with the band, so she is very excited to make music again with old friends. There will be selections from THE SOUND OF MUSIC, THE KING AND I and BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. Here's hoping that the rain will hold off this time and we'll see you there!
Diana will be a part of the cast of Pardon My English, playing at The Lion Theater at Theatre Row from April 7- April 19th.
Musicals Tonight!, now in its 17th SEASON and honored with an OBIE Award, is a not-for-profit theatre company in New York City primarily dedicated to the revival of "neglected" musicals in a manner affordable to most audience members.
In The Gershwin's Pardon My English (1933), to promote the sale of beer and wine, the German government bans the sale of all non-alcoholic beverages. In retaliation, a speak-easy is opened where patrons can imbibe forbidden drinks - cream soda and ginger ale. With music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin including “Isn't It a Pity?”, “My Cousin in Milwaukee,” ”Where You Go, I Go,” and “In Three Quarter Time.”
