Stony Brook, NY, May 22nd – If you’re looking for live musical theatre right in your own back yard Stony Brook Village is the place to be. “The Elizabeth Taylor Story,” now playing at WMHO’s Educational & Cultural Center, is not only hilarious and entertaining but also compelling as it touches on the very dramatic life of this iconic Hollywood star.
Lisa Monde’s portrayal of Liz is striking, not only for her physical resemblance but for her talents as an actress and singer as well. Included are skits about her early years as a child actress, her marriage to Richard Burton, her blockbuster movies including National Velvet, Giant and her epic motion picture, Cleopatra and, of course, her much discussed multiple husbands and divorces. Additional characters include Eydie Gorme, played by Rosie Flore and Rosie, played by Kim Dufrenoy. Guest reviews include, “Best Show Yet,” “Incredible Singing,” “Very Informative…I learned so much more about Elizabeth Taylor.”
A St. George Production, performances take place Wed., Thurs. Fri. & Sat., 11:30 am, Sun., 12:30 pm. Show dates are May 28, 29, 30, 31, June 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 17.
