JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING
As Grand Teton Music Festival’s 57th season joins the world in celebrating the anniversary of Leonard Bernstein’s centennial birthday with a Star-Spangled Season, closing week will highlight the most American of genres–the Broadway Musical!
The award-winning movie On the Town, a 1949 musical written by Leonard Bernstein, kicks off a week of foot-tapping fun. New York, New York, it’s a wonderful town—especially when sailors Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra and Jules Munshin arrive on shore leave. Monday, August 13 at 7PM. Free, but ticketed.
On Wednesday, August 15 at 8PM, GTMF Presents: Broadway Revue. The starry cast of West Side Story delights audiences with their favorite Broadway hits, accompanied by a rhythm section and string quartet of Festival Musicians. $25.
The Festival’s star-spangled grand finale is a fully cast concert adaptation of Bernstein’s consummate work, West Side Story. Amidst the rivalry between the Sharks and Jets, a tragic love story blossoms. Meechot Marrero and Jeff Kready star as Maria and Tony, and Nikki Renée Daniels returns to Jackson Hole as Anita with Tobias Greenhalgh as Riff. Music Director Donald Runnicles conducts. Friday, August 17 at 8PM and Saturday, August 18 at 6PM. $85.
