IDINA TO APPEAR IN ‘ROMANTIC POETRY’ BENEFIT

Idina is set to appear onstage in a one-night-only benefit concert, Romantic Poetry: The Musicale, with music by Henry Krieger and book/lyrics by John Patrick Shanley. The show will take place Monday, May 21st at 7:00pm at The Lucille Lortel Theatre, and will feature a slew of Broadway stars.

“Shanley and Krieger join forces to topple the musical theater form with Romantic Poetry, a soaring love song to impossible romance. In the words of the creators, ‘You will laugh, you will cry, you will shake your head. You will embrace your fellow audience members, and gasp: ‘Thank God we were here!’ You will make friends for life. The show will improve marriages, turn casual dates into torrid assignations, and reduce cynics to autograph hounds! Be there or face years of loneliness!,'” state press materials.

Ticket prices will vary, and are tax deductible. (source)

Sounds like it’ll be a pretty interesting show! I hope some of you have the opportunity to check it out.

Gallery: I have a lot more pictures to add from the Costume Institute Gala (HQs as well!), but I can’t get them up until later tonight. So hopefully by tomorrow, there will be a bunch of new pictures to enjoy. wassat
