Front Page Girl (directed by Brett Bernardini, book and lyrics by Peter Kellogg, music by David Friedman) celebrates the life and times of New York World reporter Nellie Bly… a groundbreaking investigative journalist, an intrepid world traveler, and a captain of industry — all in a time before women had the right to vote. Nellie Bly was the original sensation, before tabloid television, before the paparazzi, back when the news business was new. This remarkable woman is brought to tuneful life in a rollicking new musical about her life and loves, her fascinating times, and her struggles to “have it all” which are as perhaps even more relevant today than they were then.
Front Page Girl runs November 6 through December 8, 2013. (My last show will be December 7.)
