The play consists of ten vignettes about love, yearning and romance. Each take place in a different place and time, with music ranging from classical ballet to swing to rock and roll.
Artistic Director Barry Edelstein saw a workshop production at New York Stage and Film & Vassar College’s Powerhouse Theater and decided it was the kind of innovative new American work that the Globe had to premiere.
“This production of ‘In Your Arms’ is such a special one for all of us at The Old Globe,” he said. “Everyone who is working on it is at the top of their game.”
“The show is all visualization,” noted director and choreographer Christopher Gatelli, who described scenes ranging from Renaissance Italy to 1950s Atlanta.
The play kicks off the Globe’s 2015-16 season with an opening on Sept. 16. Tickets begin at $36 and are on sale now at 619-23-GLOBE or online at TheOldGlobe.org.
