“Glimpses of the Moon,” presented by Woodbury Community Theatre, will open on Friday, Feb. 7 and run through Sunday, Feb. 16.
This adaptation for the stage from the Edith Wharton book of the same title is a fast-paced, smart musical comedy for all ages. Set amid the whirl of 1922 Manhattan society, this comedy features a jazzy score and a timeless romantic story.
With plenty of friends, but little money, Susy Branch and her friend, Nick Lansing, devise a clever scheme to live beyond their means. They’ll marry and live off the wedding gifts while they help one another secure more suitable millionaire spouses. The plan works perfectly — until they fall in love.
Performances are Fridays and Saturdays, Feb. 7, 8, 14 and 15 at 7:30 p.m., and Sundays, Feb. 9 and 16, at 3 p.m. All performances are at the Merrill Community Arts Center, Black Box Theater at East Ridge High School, 4200 Pioneer Drive, Woodbury.
