Theatre Aquarius is proud to present Maggie: In Conversation with the Creators and Cast of Johnny Reid’s New Musical on Thursday, November 4 at 7:30 p.m. Artistic Director Mary Francis Moore will be joined by Tony nominated and Olivier award-winning producer of Come From Away, Michael Rubinoff, playwright Matt Murray, co-composer Bob Foster, and Johnny Reid to discuss the development of his breathtaking new musical Maggie (formerly My Bonnie Lass). Featuring songs from the show, this evening will be an inside look into the world of creating what’s sure to be the next big hit.
“We’re thrilled to present this rare look at the creative process behind Johnny Reid’s new musical Maggie,” said Mary Francis Moore, Artistic Director of Theatre Aquarius. Set in postwar Lanarkshire Scotland and inspired by a true story, Maggie chronicles the life of Maggie, a working-class widowed mother of three boys. When tragedy strikes, Maggie must rely on her strength, sense of humour, family, and fiercely loyal group of friends to pull her through. Featuring a soul-stirring score by Johnny Reid, Maggie is a tribute to his Granny and the women of an almost forgotten generation.
Music from show will be performed by cast members Dharma Bizier, Liam Crober-Best and Will Lincoln-Gouett. Don’t miss out on this unique evening, sure to be filled with wonderful stories and incredible music.
