Lincoln Center Theater announces New York premiere of new musical ‘THE GARDENS OF ANUNCIA’

Lincoln Center Theater has announced the New York premiere of the new musical, THE GARDENS OF ANUNCIA, inspired by the early life story of Argentine-American stage icon Graciela Daniele, with book, music, and lyrics by five-time Tony Award nominee Michael John LaChiusa.

Directed and co-choreographed by Graciela Daniele, THE GARDENS OF ANUNCIA will begin previews on Thursday 19 October 2023 and open on Monday 20 November at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater (150 West 65 Street).

The cast includes: Enrique Acevedo, Andréa Burns, Eden Espinosa, Priscilla Lopez, Tally Sessions, Mary Testa and Kalyn West.

Anuncia (Priscilla Lopez) tends the garden of her country house as she reflects on her life, looking back on her girlhood in Juan Perón’s Argentina and paying homage to the family of women whose love and sacrifices allowed her to become an artist. This funny, poignant, and beautiful musical features a beguilingly romantic and tango-infused score filled with the exuberant sounds of women reveling in the joys of being alive.

THE GARDENS OF ANUNCIA marks the fifth collaboration between Graciela Daniele and Michael John LaChiusa at Lincoln Center Theater following Hello Again (1994), Chronicle of a Death Foretold (1995), Marie Christine (1999), and Bernarda Alba (2006).

THE GARDENS OF ANUNCIA will feature co-choreography by Alex Sanchez, orchestrations by Michael Starobin, music direction by Deborah Abramson, and casting by Tara Rubin Casting, Xavier Rubiano, CSA. The production will have sets by Mark Wendland, costumes by Toni-Leslie James, lighting by Jules Fisher and Peggy Eisenhauer, and sound by Drew Levy. Thomas J. Gates will be the Stage Manager.
