Flowers for Mrs. Harris- A heart-warming display screen of love and friendship
As the audience settled into their seats for the opening night of Flowers for Mrs. Harris, the audience are welcomed by Albert Harris (Mark Meadows) and Ada Harris (Clare Burt) as she sets up a vase of flowers. This seemingly ordinary scene frames the clear message of the play that the easy concept that life without flowers is not any life at all.
Based upon Paul Gallico’s unique, Mrs. Arrris Goes to Paris, the musical follows the life of Mrs. Ada Harris; as she follows her imagine checking out Paris to buy her own Christian Dior dress.
Saving every penny from her job as a cleaner, the musical follows Ada as she scrapes together the enough funds making her dream a truth, with the support of her close friend and next door neighbor Violet Butterfield (Anna-Jane Casey). The musical has a warm sense of humor that is caught brilliantly by the duo of Burt and Casey, whose outstanding efficiencies, ultimately steal the program.
