The Plain Dealer and Broadway World have published articles announcing an upcoming, world-premiere collaboration between Cleveland Play House and The Cleveland Orchestra, which will be led by associate conductor Brett Mitchell. From The Plain Dealer:
"The Good Peaches," the hotly anticipated play for actors and orchestra written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Quiara Alegría Hudes, will make its world premiere at the Allen Theatre April 14-16 as part of the New Ground Theatre Festival, the Cleveland Play House's annual showcase of new theatrical works.
Hudes's new tale follows the heroic journey of a young girl named Aurora, tasked with delivering a wedding dress to a queen. But a violent storm knocks her off-course and into an adventure beyond her wildest imaginings.
Conducted by the Cleveland Orchestra's associate conductor, Brett Mitchell, the play will feature three actors and a 55-piece chamber orchestra performing selections from Benjamin Britten's "Sea Interludes" and "Shaker Loops" by John Adams.
