The Talented Mr. Ripley: A Reading of New Musical
By Danny Baird Jr. and Andrew Gordon
Directed by Michael Windsor
The 16th Annual Kennedy Center Page-To-Stage Festival
The Family Theater at The Kennedy Center
The Talented Mr. Ripley is a musical adaptation of the eponymous Patricia Highsmith novel and 1999 film with screenplay by Anthony Minghella. The script synthesizes Highsmith’s writings, the plot of the movie, and a classic, but wholly original score (excepting “My Funny Valentine,” a tune referenced in the film.) Using Highsmith herself as narrator, the musical takes place in a theatrical space similar to musicals like “Chicago” and “Cabaret.”
Recommended for ages 13 and up. Explicit language/themes.
Doors open at noon.
Seating is general admission, and on a first come, first serve basis.
