“Terminal Ingenue: The Mis-Education of Melissa Errico”
With the racy wit and smiling mischief that has delighted readers of her columns in The New York Times, Melissa Errico will sing her way through her own history, on Broadway and off. Falling in love with the theater at the ripe age of twelve, her journey takes her through her precocious appearance as Eliza in the Broadway revival of My Fair Lady, her triumphs in One Touch of Venus and Amour, and her struggles with the more equivocal adventures of High Society and Dracula. Wryly dubbing herself the “terminal ingenue,” with her ever-fresh prettiness and silver-flute voice sustaining her in ingenue roles until well in her forties and the mother of three, she sings her way right through promise, frustration and absurdity – and then past marriage and into motherhood and on to maturity. A special singers’ story, Melissa’s “miseducation” is also an everywoman’s story of silence and song, frustration and eventual fulfillment. The show, including songs by Lerner & Loewe, Kurt Weil and Ogden Nash, Cole Porter, Michel Legrand and Stephen Sondheim, will feature musical director Tedd Firth.
