DEAR WORLD

When was the last time you got to experience Jerry Herman’s Dear World? If you’re the most fortunate of Angelinos, it was probably way back in 2003 at Musical Theatre Guild’s one-performance-only concert staged reading of the 1969 Broadway gem, that was until last night when Cal State Northridge’s Valley Performing Arts Center opened its 2016-17 season with Dear World In Concert, starring an exquisite Tyne Daly as Countess Aurelia, the Madwoman of Chaillot.
