Irish Rep: Meet Me in St. Louis
Time Out says
The Irish Rep has been a leader in digital theatrical offerings throughout the pandemic period, and for the holiday season it takes on its most ambitious project yet: the 1989 stage musical Meet Me in St. Louis, adapted by Hugh Wheeler from the 1944 Judy Garland film about a Missouri family at the dawn of the 20th century in danger of having to move to—gasp!—New York City. Irish Rep chieftain Charlotte Moore, who was in the Broadway cast, adapts and directs this digital version, which stars Shereen Ahmed in the Garland role; the supporting cast includes Melissa Errico, Rufus Collins, Ali Ewolt, Max Von Essen, Kathy Fitzgerald and Jay Aubrey Jones. Hugh Martin and Ralph Blaine’s chocolate box of a score features “The Trolley Song,” "The Boy Next Door” and that most melancholy of Christmas-cheer songs, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” Tickets are pay-what-you-can, with $25 suggested.
