|Amy Franklin Leonards, Joy Sherratt & Rachel Powers|
Two wives find themselves dodging raindrops on the streets of dark and dreary London and being ignored in small, equally dreary apartments by husbands much more focused on themselves than on their attractive, itching-for-adventure (or at least some attention) spouses. So opens in song and scene Enchanted April, a world premiere musical based on the 1922 novel by Elizabeth von Arnim and now playing at Pacific Coast Repertory Theatre in Pleasanton. The drudgery and boredom of British February and a stage more black than not soon turn to the flower-and-sun-rich April of Italy’s coast in this light-hearted romance by Richard B. Evans (music) and Charles Leipart (book and lyrics).
