Producing Artistic Director John Lant presents
A comedic musical which plays to the changing times of the 60’s, Sophia features a strong independent woman as a predecessor to Mary Tyler Moore (Richards) and Rhoda Morganstern (Valerie Harper). Our hero Sophia is a beautiful, articulate, sophisticated, bright, and educated woman, whose blind spot is relationships. Her pattern follows sequential frequent encounters with boyfriends, who depart after short term contact. Enlisting the help of her best friend Heather, Sophia tries therapy with renowned relationship expert Jake Kelly. Diagnosed with “Beautiful Woman Syndrome”, part of her rehabilitation is to recognize every “hit-man” which always leads to a quick tryst. Sophia must learn about the forgotten majority of male society and try to focus on the “invisible men”, those who would never approach her, if she is to find true love. She develops the ability to handle her encounters with a non-descript forgettable man named George, who is truly the man of her dreams.
