A new adaptation of Truman Capote's 1954 musical hit, "House of Flowers," will play a four-week engagement at the Lyric Opera House beginning in February of 1992 as part of the Baltimore Center for the Performing Arts' 1991-92 subscription season.
Starring in the pre-Broadway musical will be singing star Patti LaBelle. Tony Award winner Geoffrey Holder, a member of the original Broadway production, will direct.
Playwright Charles Busch has reworked Capote's book. The musical score is by Harold Arlen ("Over the Rainbow") with lyrics by Capote.
