Lake Superior Theatre presents: Quilters (A Musical)

Arts &Theater
07:30 PM
Location: Lake Superior Theatre, Marquette
An actress once commented that playing one of the pioneer women in Molly Newman and Barbara Damashek's musical drama "Quilters" is far more difficult than playing, say, one of Shakespeare's court women. With Shakespeare, she explained, at least there's a theatrical tradition to fall back on. What do you have with pioneer women, except mostly bad movie stereotypes? With the retreat of America's wilderness and folk traditions,the struggles and dreams of the hardy women who went West now seem at least as remote as Henry IV's court. Willing "Quilters" to life on stage comes down to pure imagination.
