Liverpool Everyman to stage Lerner & Loewe's Paint Your Wagon

By Ryan Macaulay on November 08, 2017

Director Gemma Bodinetz, winner of the UK Theatre Best Director award 2017 and the creative team behind the 2017 whirlwind production Fiddler on the Roof, reunite to create another uniquely Everyman musical experience with Paint Your Wagon.

Written by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe (My Fair Lady), Paint Your Wagon originally premiered on Broadway in 1951 and has not featured as a major production in the UK since 1996. Set in prospecting-era America, the production includes hit songs Wand’rin Star, I Talk to the Trees and I’m on my Way. This latest Everyman musical is a diamond in the rough ready to open the Company 2018 season.

The production will run 3 March to 15 July 2018.

Gemma Bodinetz, artistic director at the Everyman & Playhouse said: “Last year was an extraordinary adventure into new territory – we’ve borrowed all we learnt from our first and award-winning Company season and tried to do it even better. We’re loading up our wagons again with just as much vigour and excitement.”
