Musical Theatre Guild Presents

Kismet

Single Tickets go on sale at 12:00 AM on 08/19/19

Musical Theatre Guild presents a Staged Concert Version of
KISMET

Music & Lyrics: Robert Wright & George Forrest from the themes of Alexander Borodin
Book: Charles Lederer & Luther Davis
Based on the play by Edward Knoblock

Set in the exotic time of the fabled Arabian Nights, KISMET spins the fateful adventure-filled tale of glib-tongued street poet Hajj, a resourceful seller of rhymes, and his beautiful daughter Marsinah. It weaves a lush tapestry of romance and melody and features many favorites including ‘Stranger in Paradise,’ ‘And This Is My Beloved’ and ‘Baubles, Bangles and Beads.’

The Los Angeles Civic Light Opera commissioned composers Wright and Forrest to adapt the luscious classical melodies of Alexander Borodin. KISMET premiered in Los Angeles before opening on Broadway in 1953 during the middle of a newspaper strike. Having no reviews to help sell tickets, KISMET was perhaps the first musical to use the power of television to promote a show. It ran for 583 performances, starring Alfred Drake, Joan Diener and Richard Kiley. The recipient of three Tony® Awards, including Best Musical, KISMET was adapted into an MGM film in 1955.
