Don’t Cry for Me, Margaret Mitchell
Theatre in the Park
Through Feb. 21
After seven decades, the 1939 film of Gone With the Wind remains the highest-grossing film of all time after adjusting for inflation (yes, even bigger than Avatar). The adaptation of this sprawling work from page to film is a monumental story in itself, from casting to filming to writing the screenplay. This last tale forms the basis of Theatre in the Park’s Don’t Cry for Me, Margaret Mitchell, a broad comedy that never quite jells.
