Georgia O’Keeffe Musical “Nearby Faraway” Makes Summer Debut in Lake George
Nearby Faraway, the musical centerpiece of an “O’Keeffe- Fest” in Lake George this summer, premieres the last two weekends in July at the Carriage House Theater at Fort William Henry. This new musical dramatizes the turbulent 30-year, real-life love story of Georgia O’Keeffe, America’s favorite painter, and her husband/manager Alfred Stieglitz — the most written about couple of the 20th century — as they redefine art, marriage, and celebrity.
The musical drama features a score by International Alliance of Women in Music’s
Catherine Reid, book and lyrics by Zigzag author Neal Herr and stars Actors Equity’s Hillary
Parker. With an evocative set designed by Adirondack Scenic and animated projections of
O’Keeffe-inspired paintings by local artists, this musical is sure to be a feast for the eyes and ears.
The musical will conclude a free, two-week “O’Keeffe Festival,” including preview concerts, beginner and advanced painting classes, slides about Stieglitz at the Bolton Museum and an Alfred & Georgia Celebrity Lookalike Fashion Show at the Hyde Collection.
