Tomorrow night (April 15), at 6pm, the Ridge Repertory Company will bring a new musical called “Mirror, Mirror… A Musical In Seven Times” to the Bay Ridge Jewish Center. Susan Bucci, one of the writers, says this about “Mirror, Mirror:”
This play is about the tenants living a Manhattan brownstone over a period from roughly 1870 to 2011. The story covers these people and what happens to them at various points in their lives and how they interact with one another across time through the use of a magic mirror. While the play does have a certain fantasy element to it,it is really more of a musical drama with 21 original songs.
Director James Martinelli adds, “Being touched and and cared for doesn’t only happen with people of the present, it happens from people of the past.”
If you aren’t able to make tomorrow’s showing, “Mirror, Mirror” will run again next Sunday, April 22. Admission is $10, and includes coffee. The play should run about two hours, plus intermission.
The Bay Ridge Jewish Center is located at 405 81st Street.
