Dear World (York Theatre Company)

February 26, 2017

Performances begin Saturday afternoon, February 25, 2017 for 10-performances only through March 5, 2017.

Dear World concludes the 3-show Winter 2017 series.  When a group of businessmen scheme to drill for oil in Paris, there is only one force in the world that can stop them: Countess Aurelia, the Madwoman of Chaillot. With the help of idealism, love, and poetry – not to mention two other madwomen, a local garbage man, and a pair of young lovers – the Countess fights to save Paris and the world from greed. With Dear World‘s opening on Broadway in 1969, Mr. Herman became the first composer-lyricist to have three productions simultaneously running on Broadway, and for her performance 2015 Oscar Hammerstein Honoree Angela Lansbury received the second of her five Tony® Awards.  Dear World has book by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, with music and lyrics by Jerry Herman.  Michael Montel is set to direct.
