Gigi with Broken Leg Productions
October 19 - October 28
Margaret will appear as Mamita in BLP’s inaugural adult mainstage production.
From the BLP website:
Gigi is a story of La Belle Epoque, Paris at the turn of the century: a world of beauty and luxury and sophisticates like Honoré and his handsome nephew Gaston. In this world love is a work of art and also a business arrangement. Little Gigi is being trained by her Aunt Alicia; she must learn how to allure, how to recognise the blue flame at the heart of an emerald, how to choose a cigar – but Gigi doesn’t want just to be someone’s mistress, even Gaston’s. To his surprise Gaston discovers that Gigi is the only girl who doesn’t bore him.
Gigi is a show that bubbles like champagne that flows through its vivid scenes. There is a tang of salty French wit, too, and a lacing of all-time hits; “Gigi”, “The Night They Invented Champagne”, “I Remember It Well”, and “Thank Heaven For Little Girls”.
