Details of The People In The Picture and the Ticket Luck value
Broadway plays are usually all about entertainment. The People in the Picture does better; it sends a poignant message with laughter. It offers history, social interaction, often not very smooth, between three generations of a family. The show is about an old Jewish lady, who prefers to live in her past, since it was glorious. Ideally, she would want to be in her native pre-War Poland, which is more familiar to her, rather than present day New York City, where she now resides with her family. She would want to have a normal mother-daughter relationship, but instead has a better rapport with her granddaughter. Set in the backdrop of Holocaust, the show is a musical full of laughter.
The musical is produced by Roundabout Theatre Company and Tracy Aron. The show’s lyrics and story are by Iris Rainer Dart and music by Artie Butler and Mike Stoller. It is directed by Leonard Foglia and choreographed by Andy Blankenbuehler. Paul Huntley has done the hair and wig designs, and projection designing is done by Elaine J. McCarthy. Sound designing is by Dan Moses Schreier and lighting design by Howell Binkley. Ann Hould-Ward has done costume designing and Riccardo Hernandez is the scenic designer. This great musicals’ music director is Paul Gemignani.
The People in the Picture has a big star cast, consisting of Stuart Zagnit, Paul Anthony Stewart, Jeffrey Schecter, Megan Reinking, Jessica Lea Patty, Shannon Lewis, Louis Hobson, Maya Goldman, Emilee Dupre, Jeremy Davis, Rachel Bress, Brad Bradley, Chip Zien, Lewis J. Stadlen, Hal Robinson, Rachel Resheff, Nicole Parker, Christopher Innvar, Alexander Gemignani, and two times Tony Award winner, Donna Murphy.
Donna Murphy, who has been recognized for her acting skills with two very prestigious Awards for her work in Passion and The King and I, plays the main role of Bubbie, a Yiddish theatre star in pre-war Poland. Murphy has the critics raving since her role transforms from a young woman in Poland to an old lady in New York City, all in the span of about 2 hours. Bubbie had been a talk of the town in theatre going crowds of Poland before World War-II engulfs the whole nation. Being as a Jew living in Nazi-invaded Poland was not an easy thing to do, to say the very least. She had to escape to the freer land, i.e., the United States of America, where she settles down in New York City. She also raises her family in the NYC. But now that she has seen many summers of her life, she wants her daughter, Red, to know, what she had to go through and what her life was like in Poland. She has not been able to completely assimilate in the urban life of New York City. Her daughter, who is a through and through New Yorker, has no stomach for her old tales, as she cannot relate to them. The chemistry between the mother and daughter is not great, to say the very least. However, she finds an audience in the shape and form of her granddaughter, who is mesmerized by her grandmother’s stories.
The story being told by this musical is so powerful that its creators never had any hesitation in taking it straight to Broadway for its world debut. Traditionally, shows are usually played in front of other audiences before being presented on Broadway. But it is not the case with The People in the Picture.
