A brand new production of the Broadway musical Bells Are Ringing directed by Paul Foster and produced by Jonathan Russell Productions, this warm and witty musical tells the story of Ella Peterson who works at Susanswerphone, her cousin's answering service for the celebrities on New York's smart East Side. With plenty of opportunities to indulge her gift for "helping" others, events begin to spiral out of control as Ella falls for hard-drinking playwright Jeff Moss and her little white lies come back to haunt her.
With an evergreen score by Jule Styne (Gypsy, Funny Girl) and Book by Betty Comden and Adolph Green (Singin' in the Rain, On the Town), this charming musical features the enduring standards "Just in Time", "The Party's Over" and "Long Before I Knew You". Anna-Jane Casey (Chicago, Piaf, Sunday in the Park with George, TMA winner for Best Actress in a Musical for Mack and Mabel) and Gary Milner (Parade, Evita, A Streetcar Named Desire) will lead a cast of 15 in the first major revival since 1957 of this vintage musical comedy.
