Lyrics byJan Levy Tranen
Based on Candida byGeorge Bernard Shaw
Conceived & Directed byMichael Halberstam
A MINISTER'S WIFE, a new musical based on George Bernard Shaw's Candida, is set in London in the swirl of a love triangle among energetic, admired Socialist clergyman, Reverend James Morell, his strong-willed and beautiful wife, Candida, and an idealistic young poet, Eugene Marchbanks, who, infatuated with Candida, aims to win her love.
Austin Pendleton adapted the Shaw classic, and Michael Halberstam, who staged the Chicago production at his Writers' Theater in Glencoe, directed.
