Section 12B (Other NC events)

(1) MLF: The Musical

  • MILF: The Musical, a family-friendly tale of inappropriate love
    book & lyrics by Lucia Del Vecchio, music by Holiday Childress
    directed by Steven SamuelsThursdays-Saturdays Sept 13th-Oct 13th @ 7:30pm

    Known for her razor-sharp wit and acute sense of middle-class American suburbia, Lucia Del Vecchio (familiar to local audiences as the author of the hits Shangri-La and The Evolution of Woman) has made an exciting foray into new theatrical territory with The Magnetic Theatre’s first musical.Despite the implications of its title, MILF is a family-friendly musical, that is a gentle send-up of suburbia’s cookie-cutter houses and the folks who live in them. Brilliantly written and handsomely staged, MILF: The Musical promises to be the must see event of WNC’s fall theatre season.For more information visit: http://www.themagneticfield.com/milf
