Calendar Notice for 'I Do! I Do!' September 22 - October 22
NEW MILFORD, CONN. (August 17, 2017) – On September 22, TheatreWorks New Milford will open I Do! I Do!, a musical with book by Tom Jones (The Fantasticks) and music by Harvey Schmidt. I Do! I Do! is based on the Jan de Hartog play The Fourposter. The original Broadway production received seven Tony Award nominations.
The show begins in 1895 with Michael and Agnes on their wedding day. Their vows behind them, they look forward to spending the rest of their lives together. We watch as they go through their wedding night jitters, raise a family and negotiate midlife crises. Michael eventually admits to his infidelity, and, although Agnes is angered by his actions, she forgives him and the couple reconciles. They rediscover how much they really need each other. Then, after fifty years of marriage, the couple leaves their house to the next pair of newlyweds.
This production is under the direction of Brad Blake with musical direction by Charles Smith, and features two of the area's most talented actors, Carey Van Hollen and Jonathan Jacobson.
I Do! I Do! runs Fridays and Saturdays from September 22 through Sunday October 22. Curtain time is 8:00 p.m. on Fridays & Saturdays, and 2:00 p.m. on both Sunday matinees on October 1 and 22.
