Darling: A Musical
8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
125 E 2nd Avenue
Darling is a musical fresh from New York, written in 2009 by Ryan Scott Oliver and Brett Ryback, two graduates from music composition bachelor programs. The show is loosely based on Peter Pan and has never been performed in Canada before.Darling follows upper crust teenager Ursula Morgan in 1929 Boston as society boils in the weeks before the Stock Market Crash. Neglected by her excessive, self-absorbed parents, Ursula encounters Peter, a charming rent-boy of uncertain age, on the run from Captain Rose of the Police. When she is offered the opportunity to run away with him, she takes it and finds herself swept into the seedy underground of jazz, speakeasies, and a mysterious powder called Dust. Along the way, they also meet the featherboys of the Warehouse speakeasy, Stella the jealous barkeep, and the girls of Lily’s burlesque. Darling is fresh, emotional, and daring new musical theatre at its finest.
