Crazy World at the Loft

In 1995, 60-year-old Julie Andrews was about to return to Broadway after a 35-year hiatus from the stage. But as the premiere of “Victor/Victoria” drew near, she was plagued by pressure and doubt. Linette Miles plays Andrews in “Crazy World,” a two-act, one-woman musical review inspired by Andrews’ life. It’s on stage at The Music Hall Loft in Portsmouth April 25-28 at 7 p.m., with matinees on Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $30-$40. Learn more here.
