Musical Theatre Guild Presents

The Goodbye Girl

  • This event has passed.

Musical Theatre Guild presents a Staged Concert Version of
THE GOODBYE GIRL

Music: Marvin Hamlisch
Lyrics: David Zippel
Book: Neil Simon
Based on Simon’s 1977 award-winning screenplay of the same name

Based on Neil Simon’s 1977 award-winning film, THE GOODBYE GIRL follows the unlikely comic romance between Paula, a bitter single mother and former Broadway dancer who has been jilted one too many times, and Elliot, an opinionated actor who shows up unexpectedly with a lease to sublet her apartment. Musical sparks ensue. Simon’s collaborators for the musical were the legendary Marvin Hamlisch (A Chorus Line) and David Zippel (City of Angels).
After an out-of-town tryout in Chicago, THE GOODBYE GIRL opened on Broadway in 1993 starring Bernadette Peters and, in his Broadway debut, Martin Short. It ran for 188 performances, was nominated for 5 Tony® Awards and won the Drama Desk Award for Mr. Hamlisch’s brassy, giddy and rhythmic score.

Status Update from the Alex Theatre

 

As the saying goes, "The Show Must Go On." However, sometimes, unprecedented circumstances call for the show to be paused. This is one of those rare times.

 

 

Currently, our shows through April 5th will not be taking place on their original dates.

 

 

The Glendale Arts and Alex Theatre staff have been hard at work behind-the-scenes collaborating with the presenters of these performances to reschedule dates and communicating with ticket buyers about their options.

 

 

We are continuing to monitor directives established by local, state-wide, and national authorities and will post developments on shows scheduled beyond April 5th as they happen.

 

 

While our staff is working remotely, we are with our beloved Alex in spirit, and our hearts remain committed to the thousands of patrons we happily serve every week and our extended family of presenters, producers, performers, and community members who call the Alex home.

 

 

These are trying time for everyone. The economic impact on the dual industries with which we identify - non-profits and performing arts/live entertainment - has been swift and severe.

 

 

If you are able, we ask you make a gift at GlendaleArts.org that will allow us to continue our work at the Alex Theatre - a place for arts and entertainment to be enjoyed; a symbol of history, beauty, and community - during this time, so we are ready to bring healing and happiness to all who need it when the time is right.

 

 

We wish all of you and your loved ones health and safety throughout this situation and can't wait to welcome you through our doors again when the show is ready to go back on.

 

 

With our love,

 

Glendale Arts/Alex Theatre Management Staff
