This year the Carolina Union continues
its tradition of bringing a little New York
sophistication to the little borough of
Chapel Hill with its popular Broadway
On Tour series. This year's selections in
clude four of the most popular Broadway
productions of the last several years: the
musicals, Annie, They're Playing Our
Song and The Best Little Whorehouse in
Texas and the drama Children of a Lesser
God. Season tickets are now available at
the Carolina Union Box Office: Prices
are $29 and $34 for the Saturday matinee
series and $39 and $44 for the Friday and
Saturday evening series.
Children of a Lesser God will be per
formed at 8:30 p.m. Nov. 20 and 21 and
at 4 p.m. Nov. 21 in Memorial Hall. Mark
Medoffs drama is the story of James
Leeds, an instructor at a school for the
deaf, and his most intriguing and stubborn
pupil, Sarah Norman. Their mutual learn
ing process blossoms into love and mar
riage, but always there is the constant
struggle to appreciate each other's world.
Children of a Lesser God won Tony
Awards in 1980 for Best Dramatic play
and best actress.
Annie, based on the popular Harold
Grey comic strip Little Orphan Annie,
will be performed at 8:30 p.m. Jan. 22
and 23 and at 4 p.m. Jan. 23 in Memorial
Hall. The musical which features the best
Broadway score in recent memory is the
story of how Orphan Annie is adopted by
the billionaire Daddy Warbucks. Annie,
one of the longest running musicals, in
Broadway history, is the winner of seven
Tony Awards including best musical.
The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas
will be performed at 8:30 p.m. Feb. 19
and 20 and at 4 p.m. Feb. 20 in Memorial
Hall, Whorehouse, is a lively, true-life tale
of the Chicken Ranch, the legendary
sporting place for generations of Texas
males that was closed down in the early
1970s as a result of an investigative televi
sion news team. The musical features a
rollicking score and free-spirited chore
ography by Tommy Tune as well as lots of
bawdy, good ol' boy and gal humor. Rex
Reed called Whorehouse "a sassy, enter
taining musical ...boisterous fun!"
They're Playing Our Song will be per
formed at 8:30 p.m. April 16 and 17 and
at 4 p.m. April 17 in Memorial Hall. Neil
Simon wrote the book for this musical
that bears more than a little resemblance
to the lives of Marvin Hamlisch and Carol
Bayer Sager, who wrote the music and ly
rics. They're Playing Our Song centers
around Vernon, an Academy Award win
ning composer, and Sonia, a witty lyricist,
who collaborate not only on music, but
also on romance. They have quite a diffi
cult time making their lives as harmonious
as their music. Gene Shalit called They're
Playing Our Song "a walloping, wonder
ful musical hit."
