Andrew Kay, Liza McLean & Michael Coppel have announced that Jerry Hall will reprise her role as the legendary seductress, the sexy, sultry Mrs Robinson in a Melbourne exclusive season of "THE GRADUATE" in 2013. Jerry's wowed audiences in this iconic piece of American culture in the West End, Toronto, Broadway, North America, Perth and now, it's Melbourne's turn to be seduced.
Adapted from Charles Webb's novel and the Oscar winning film, THE GRADUATE is at once a moving coming of age story and a terrifically funny black comedy. With the rise of the " Cougar", the production is as relevant today as it was the day it was written. "THE GRADUATE" is set against a soundtrack of some of the most memorable songs of the sixties including Wouldn't It Be Nice - by The Beach Boys, Everybody's Talkin - by Harry Nilsson and, of course, The Sound Of Silence and Mrs Robinson - by Simon & Garfunkel.
THE GRADUATE is adapted and originally directed by Terry Johnson, from the novel by Charles Webb and the screenplay by Calder Willingham and Buck Henry. It is produced by Kay & McLean Productions Pty Ltd in association with Michael Coppel.
Production design is by Rob Howell (sets and costumes), Hugh Vanstone (lighting) and Christopher Cronin (sound). THE GRADUATE features songs by Paul Simon, performed by Simon and Garfunkel, and original music composed and arranged by Barrington Pheloung.
The GRADUATE was originally commissioned and produced on the London and Broadway stage by John Reid and Sacha Brooks.
