TROUBLE IN TAHITI by LEONARD BERNSTEIN
Brooke Littlewood, James Walker, Beth Traynor, Theo Williams & Luke Power dazzle in this gem by Leonard Bernstein set in American suburbia of the 1950’s. Bernstein wrote both lyrics & the music score, and it tells the story of a disintegrating marriage loosely based on his own parent’s life. It is an insightful picture of disillusionment with The American Dream, the male ego, comment on the place of women in society then, and the dreams and fantasies offered by the movies (the “Silver Screen”). It is a highly entertaining work showcasing our excellent trio of Beth, Theo & Luke, and the vocal gymnastics of the leads, James & Brooke. Expect to be ultimately uplifted by this production!
This will be a Covid safe production at Newcastle Theatre Company.
