Pipe Dream

Music by Richard Rodgers
Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Based on the novella Sweet Thursday by John Steinbeck

 Pipe Dream cast at Lakewood Theatre Company

The Story: Pipe Dream is the seventh musical by the team of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II; it premiered on Broadway on November 30, 1955. The work is based on John Steinbeck's short novel Sweet Thursday, a sequel to his novel Cannery Row. The drifters and dropouts along Cannery Row in Monterey California spring to life in this uncommon story of love and hope. When Suzy (Catherine Olson), a homeless girl, is picked up for stealing food, she's taken in by Fauna (Paige Jones), the big-hearted Madam of the Bear Flag Café (which is no café at all). Here she meets Doc (Peter Schuyler), a carefree marine biologist, and soon romance is in the air. Rodgers & Hammerstein struck a new tone with Pipe Dream — intimate, warm and highly personal.

Lakewood's Pipe Dream cast also features Ethan LaFrance as Hazel, Jeff Ekdahl as Mac, Hillarie Hunt as Mercedes, Jesse Miller as Jim/George/Sonny/Dormandy, and Evan Tait as Ray/Joe/Singer/Johnny.
