Barrie: Talk Is Free Theatre presents Rodgers and Hart’s “Pal Joey” October 10-19

Wednesday, September 18, 2019

Pal Joey follows the wily Joey Evans, a cunning small-time nightclub owner whose ambition knows no bounds. Driven by dreams of glamour and power, his schemes are laced with deception and entanglements with the wealthy and already married Vera Simpson. Featuring songs that have become Broadway standards including “I Could Write a Book” and “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered”, Pal Joey is a fiendish classic that has had several revivals and a film adaptation starring Frank Sinatra and Rita Hayworth.

Performance times are Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30pm, Friday and Saturday at 8pm, and a Saturday matinee at 2pm.
