ICCT benefit tomorrow

ICCT - Iowa City Community Theatre invites its audiences and members of the community to celebrate the music of Broadway's Golden Age with a revue, Loverly: Love Songs of Lerner and Loewe and Lane. The benefit will be on Saturday, Feb. 21, at 7pm, at the penthouse of the Plaza Towers (hotel Vetro) in downtown Iowa City.

Alan Jay Lerner, a giant of American musical theater, is the lyricist who, with composers Frederick Loewe, Burton Lane and several others, created a number of enduring classics of American popular song. ICCT have gathered a group of performers -- Mary Haaf-Wedemeyer, Howard Meadows and Megan Sands, along with Nelson and Maggie Gurll and Richard Bloesch on piano -- to celebrate the talents that have so enriched American musical theater. Songs will include selections from classic Lerner and Loewe musicals as My Fair Lady, Camelot and Gigi, as well as Lerner's collaborations with Burton Lane (On A Clear Day You Can See Forever, Royal Wedding).

Tickets can be reserved by calling the Iowa City Community Theatre at: 319-338-0443 for pick at the penthouse of the Plaza Towers (hotelVetro). Tickets should also be available at the door.
