Staged Reading of Classic Play Bells Are Ringing Recalls Days Past
University Theater – The William Link Theater (Long Beach, CA)
Take a trip back when cell phones and voice mail were mere fantasy, and the only way you could get through to someone was with the help of a friendly telephone operator. Bells Are Ringing tells the story of Ella Peterson, operator at Sue’s Answer Phone, as she falls in love with the voice on the other end of the line. This classic Broadway show originally starred Judy Holliday and featured the standards “Just in Time” and “The Party’s Over.” This staged reading keeps the play and score intact, but uses minimalist staging to create an intimate performance. Make the connection with Bells Are Ringing and enjoy a wonderful look at the past.
