DEAR LENNY: BERNSTEIN’S LIFE IN SONGS & LETTERS

September 24, 2018

7:00 PM

A new concert from Chronofon Productions

Bradley Greenwald, Prudence Johnson, Diana Grasselli and Dan Chouinard present Dear Lenny: Bernstein’s Life in Songs & Letters, their meditation on Leonard Bernstein’s commitment to music, love, and the artist as progressive social activist. Bernstein’s masterpieces from Broadway, the concert hall, and the silver screen—together with his fascinating and candid correspondence with Aaron Copland, Stephen Sondheim, Jerome Robbins, Thornton Wilder, Bette Davis, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and more—will be presented in a theatrical concert that, as Bernstein would put it, “appeals to both the intellect and the heart.”
