Kurt Vonnegut's: God Bless You Mr. Rosewater
This production is being done in partnership with the Cotuit Center for the Arts.
Kurt Vonnegut's God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater is an outrageous and savagely funny fantasy about people, their pleasures, pains, and perversions, a penetrating satire on insanity – a millionaire's private lunacy. Featuring a infectious score by Oscar and Tony-winning team Alan Menken and Howard Ashman (Beauty And The Beast, The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors), God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater is a legendary collaboration between one of America's greatest novelists and the songwriting team behind the greatest hits of all time. This production marks the New England premiere of this remarkable show.
Eliot Rosewater, drunk, volunteer fireman, and president of the fabulously rich Rosewater foundation, is about to attempt a noble experiment with human nature with a little help from writer Kilgore Trout. The result is Vonnegut's funniest satire, an etched-in-acid portrayal of the greed, hypocrisy, and follies of the flesh we are all heir to.
Any fan of the music of Menken and Ashman will delight in producing this gem which marked the first collaboration for the two. Full of unforgettable characters and a rich and hysterically funny story, God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater is a perfect choice for theatres looking for hidden greats of musical theatre.
