Erie Playhouse Stages The Glorious Ones by Tracy Geibel

Friday, March 10

The Erie Playhouse will perform The Glorious Ones on Friday and Saturday, March 10 and 11, at Gannon University’s Schuster Theatre.

Based on the book by Francine Prose, beloved Broadway duo Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens are responsible for bringing the story to life as a musical.

The Glorious Ones has “one hand on the crotch, and one hand on the heart,” Ahrens says.

The crude and comical but also somewhat serious and heart-touching musical tells the story of an acting troupe that searches for fame. Things go awry when the group is forced to leave France because its performances are deemed too offensive and lustful. A lead character and founder of the small troupe, Flaminio Scala, doesn’t react well to this decision and worries about what it means for his acting career.

Directed by Almitra Clerkin, the Erie Playhouse show will feature Kate Amatuzzo as Isbella Andreini, Shawn Clerkin as Flaminio Scala, and Jean Malthaner as Armand Ragusa.

Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Alex Clemente Fund and allow the Playhouse to participate in the Pennsylvania Association of Community Theatre Fest’s competition, held mid-March in Williamsport. – Tracy Geibel
