    An Evening With the Aging Ingenue

    With Sara Jean Ford

    Saturday, July 6, 2024 at 7:30pm

    On the Outdoor Patio Stage

    Reserved Seating $45

    Join Broadway veteran Sara Jean Ford as she brings her hit Broadwayworld web series “The Aging Ingénue” to the stage, with an raucously funny evening of music and storytelling. An Evening with The Aging Ingénue is hosted by Sara’s fictional alter-ego Claire Cooke — a Broadway starlette all grown up — as she struggles to navigate her new reality as an aging actor & mother – all while singing songs that she is far too old to sing (and sharing secrets that she is far too comfortable revealing).

    Featuring songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber, Tim Minchin, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Charles Strouse, and Stephen Schwartz — really just a bunch of saccharine sweet & virginally youthful songs — but sung with the emotional depth and gravitas that can only be gained from what 40+ years in this business will sear into your soul.

    “Her crystalline voice and immaculate enunciation, coupled with an actor’s ability to illuminate lyrics, made every song of the evening a highlight.”

    – Bart Greenburg, Cabaret Scenes

    “The funniest Christine Daaé we’ve ever had!”

    – Harold Prince (Director of Broadway’s The Phantom of the Opera)
