Dear World
Boulevard Theatre stages a concert reading of composer (HELLO, DOLLY!, MAME) Jerry Hermans cherished musical fable DEAR WORLD. This musical adaptation of Jean Giraudouxs comedy THE MADWOMAN OF CHAILLOT is presented at Plymouth Church. This melodic masterpiece tells of three colorful Parisian madwomen(the Countess Aurelia and her friends Constance and Gabrielle) who cross paths with an oil conglomerate that plans to blow up Paris, as oil has been discovered beneath its streets! Countess Aurelia (because of a broken heart) went mad in her youth and is now known as The Madwoman of Chaillot. Aurelia strives to eliminate the evil corporation  and its executives! Will the corporation be defeated? Will idealism and love triumph over greed and materialism? Attend and find out!

Director/actor David Flores will stage the DEAR WORLD concert reading and Donna Kummer will serve as music director. Flores and Kummer shared these duties for Boulevards acclaimed 2014 staging of Rodgers & Harts musical PAL JOEY and the 2016 SMASH hit tribute to Milwaukee, WHERE THE STREETCAR BENDS THE CORNER, DOWN BY THE ZOO! These shows enjoyed overflowing houses and won notable critical acclaim. And both showcased LOCAL artists.

A concert reading of a musical means a modern dress, script-in-hand but fully acted performance (accompanied by piano and staged efficiently) and is an excellent way to experience the best, rarely-produced works of the American musical theater. This stripping-down can result in a new, exciting vision of a neglected, older work. Appearing in the leading role of Countess Aurelia (a role that was played by Angela Lansbury) is esteemed actress, singer, and cabaret artist Liz Norton, who won notice for her witty portrayal of Melba in the Boulevards concert staging of PAL JOEY. Some of Milwaukees most talented and appealing performers complete the cast, including: Julie Alonzo-Calteaux, Zachary Dean, David Ferrie, Julianne Frey, Joseph Gallo, Paula Garcia, and Chad Larget.
