Not many people like the idea of getting older, but let’s face it…it’s better than the alternative. In truth, there is much to be celebrated about aging. That’s the idea behind the original musical production “Forever Sung: A Celebration of Age in Song” at the Phoenix Theatre in Indianapolis.
“Forever Sung” opens to the public on Friday, May 18 and runs May 18-20, 24-26 and June 1-3 at the downtown theatre. The show is a collaboration between the Phoenix Theatre and the University of Indianapolis Center for Aging & Community, which is sponsoring the event as a finale to its 10th anniversary year.
Audiences will delightfully recall songs from years past in this musical concert that celebrates every age of life. The music is borrowed from the songbooks of Bob Dylan, Nina Simone, The Grateful Dead, Toby Keith, Cat Stevens, Sting, John Mayer, Taylor Swift, Paul Simon and many others.
“Forever Sung” is presented in the Phoenix’s cozy caberet-style Frank and Katrina Basile Theatre. Showtimes are Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. All seats are $25.
