REVIEW: HALLELUJAH, BABY!

BY RYAN LUÉVANO

Making a career in the performing arts has always been a challenge, now imagine trying the same thing as a minority in a time when equality does not exist. That’s the basic premise the 1967 musical Hallelujah, Baby! (music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Adolph Green and Betty Comden, and a book by Arthur Laurents) which follows a young African-American woman spanning six decades. Musical Theatre Guild, known for producing lesser-known musicals, brought a one-night-only concert reading to the Alex Theatre on Sunday, February 12th, 2017, reacquainting audiences with this forgotten musical gem.
