For more than 60 years, the Attic Theatre has culled the talents of local actors to stage thrilling community theater productions of classic and contemporary masterpieces. Featuring lines and lyrics penned by Fantasticks librettist and lyricist Tom Jones, I Do, I Do chronicles 50 years in the lives of married couple Michael and Agnes Snow with intimacy and poignancy. Audiences witness the lovebirds' wedding-night nerves, midlife crises, spats, and, ultimately, abiding love for each other while relishing tender tunes such as "My Cup Runneth Over," a song about Michael's tragically impaired depth perception. The original 1966 production earned multiple Tony nominations including Best Musical, and Robert Preston won Best Actor in a Musical. The Attic Theatre's production is directed by Julie Martin.
