MFAW-VT faculty member Deborah Brevoort’s new play MY LORD, WHAT A NIGHT, about Marian Anderson and Albert Einstein, has been chosen for Orlando Shakespeare Theater’s PLAYFEST festival. It will be presented in a staged reading in Orlando on November 11, 2019.
From the Press Release:
In 1937, legendary singer Marian Anderson gave a concert in Princeton, NJ and was refused a room at the Nassau Inn because she was black. Albert Einstein invited her to stay at his home beginning an intimate friendship between the two that would last for a lifetime. Based on actual events, My Lord, What a Night provides a thought-provoking account of what happened that night.
