Legacy Theatre Presents “My Unauthorized Hallmark Movie Musical”

August 11, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - August 13, 2022 @ 8:00 pm

The team at The Legacy Theatre, Branford’s own regional, professional theatre on the shoreline, is incredibly excited to bring an entertaining and technically brilliant new musical to the Legacy stage. Running Thursday, August 11 to Saturday, August 13, is the fourth installment in Legacy’s 2022 New Works Series – “My Unauthorized Hallmark Movie Musical.”

Hallmark meets Broadway: a match made in heaven! In “My Unauthorized Hallmark Movie Musical,” discover a writer who dreams herself awake and re-discovers romance in a nonconventional way. Attempting to write her own story, we get a front-row seat to her imagination as the characters in her struggling script come to life, interacting with her through multimedia. With song, dance, and comedic quips, the characters help her to revitalize a dream long held but never realized. Enjoy utterly delightful ditties in this frivolous, fractured, and fun musical where love always wins!

Directed by Legacy co-founder and Artistic Director, Keely Baisden Knudsen, this innovative feel-good musical features the live performance of Broadway’s Anne Runolfsson (“Phantom of the Opera,” “Les Misérables,” “Victor/Victoria”) magically interacting with multimedia video performances by eight dynamic musical performers (Nina Herzog, Benny Perez, Andrew Joseph Perez, Jim Blanchette, Tess Adams, Monika Pena, Maggie Howell, Samantha Labrecque). The virtual actors converse, sing, and dance with Anne through the magic of multimedia, directed by Crissy Guerrero. Featuring songs such as “Cheesy,” “True Love’s Kiss,” and “Love is a Risky Business,” “My Unauthorized Hallmark Movie Musical” is the perfect ladies’ night out! Escape into the magic of a romance movie fantasy and celebrate the joys of Hallmark in Legacy’s state-of-the-art, newly restored facility this August.
