In what may be Main Street Theatre & Dance Alliance's most ambitious effort yet, Director Jacqueline Lucid leads the Adult Musical Theatre in four performances, beginning Friday night at 8:00, in Oh, What a Lovely War! at the Howe Theatre, Roosevelt Island Cultural Center.

Nearly 17,000,000, including roughly 7,000,000 civilians, died in the First World War, a conflict undertaken with little just cause that resolved next to nothing. Its flawed armistice is generally credited with setting the stage for the even deadlier World War II.

In 1963, Joan Littlewood and her ensemble at the Theatre Workshop developed Oh, What a Lovely War! as a satire based on World War I, but intended to implicate all wars. Its immense popularity has led to countless stagings, including a revival at Stratford in 2014.
