I Had a Ball


UnsungMusicalsCo. presents a reading of the 1964 musical comedy I Had a Ball, featuring Emmy Award winner Bruce Vilanch (“Hollywood Squares,” Hairspray). With a book by Tony Award winner Jerome Chodorov and a score by Stan Freeman & Jack Lawrence, this vibrant, colorful confection follows the delightfully eccentric denizens of Coney Island and the feisty fortune-teller who singlehandedly sets off a series of raucous romantic entanglements. Sparks fly, love blossoms, and hilarious hijinks ensue in this bright and brassy entertainment.
