'Old Lady' Linda Lavin Animates NYCO's Stale 'Candide'

Leonard Bernstein’s most inventive score for the theater, the participation of Broadway legend Hal Prince as director, plus the deeply emotional association of the piece with NYCO’s history from 1982 to the present—all this is surely a recipe for a triumph. 545 more words
