“Venecia” at George Street Playhouse

by Jorge Accame
Music & Lyrics by Andrew Lippa
Adapted by Arthur Laurents

A smash hit in his native Argentina, playwright Jorge Accame's charming comic fable VENECIA has received a sparkling new adaptation by renowned playwright Arthur Laurents (West Side Story, Gypsy). Set in the backyard of a small, broken-down brothel, the ladies who work there dream of better lives. The elderly La Vieja -- who once entertained men of great renown -- is still waiting for a chance to see Venice, the 'city built on water' that haunts her dreams. Her faithful friends devise a hilarious plan to help La Vieja reach her impossible dream – one that will both surprise and delight you! A perfect blend of intelligence and charm, VENECIA is a postcard getaway into a colorful, wonderful world.
