The Full Gallop

by Mark Hampton & Mary Louise Wilson, directed by David Baecker

May 20, 21, 22, 2011 (Fri.-Sun.) Based on the life of Diana Vreeland, icon of American style for five decades, Full Gallop is a portrait of this remarkable woman at a turning point in her life. Set in 1971, Vreeland has newly returned home to New York from Europe, after being unceremoniously fired from Vogue magazine. She throws an impromptu dinner party hoping that a wealthy friend who is invited will bankroll her in starting a magazine of her own. At turns rollicking and poignant, the play takes us on the journey of her life, and reveals that her glittering, impenetrable manner is really protective armor for a vulnerable soul.
