Evening Primrose

After watching the way he treats his mother in Psycho, it’s difficult to imagine Anthony Perkins playing anything but Norman Bates. This classic ABC Stage 76 musical should help balance the scales in Perkin’s favor. In it, he plays a poet who hides out in a department store after closing to find a quiet place to write. He soon discovers a world of other people who live in the store after closing hours, people who are very strict about the rules of department store life. It’s a Broadway show set in The Twilight Zone, featuring the wonderful music of Stephen Sondheim.
