Musical_Theater_Project_SquareHere is a chance to see a great 1968 Kander and Ebb show you may have missed - based on the wildly popular novel and film Zorba the Greek. This stirring tale captures the spirit of Greece and celebrates a people who embrace love, life, and death with equal passion. "I Am Free" proclaims Zorba in song, and you are bound to be moved by his credo!

An 'in-concert' performance simply tells the story focusing on this important American musical through all spoken dialogue and songs. Join us for a special post-show discussion with performers, Terri Kent, and Bill Rudman, Artistic Director for The Musical Theater Project.
