Crossing the Bay is a concert version of a new musical comedy with music and lyrics by Lee Ahlin and written and directed by Bill Leavengood, the creators of Webb’s City: The Musical, another original production. A romantic musical journey back to the founding of St. Petersburg will be presented in Hough Hall of the Palladium Theater at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 20 and 21, and at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 22.
Inspired by Jane Austen’s enduring classic, Pride & Prejudice, the story follows the struggle to bring the railroad and prosperity to the tiny town of St. Petersburg in the end of the Pinellas Peninsula and the tumultuous relationship between a strong-minded Florida farm girl and the entitled nephew of a Northern rail baron. The show is presented by the St. Pete Museum of History, Will Knot Di Artists and The Palladium Theater.
