Obsession: The Elizabeth Smart Musical

– Goltsman-Ferris Productions

Discover the real story behind iconic Canadian novelist Elizabeth Smart, who stunned readers with her publication of By Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept. This intimate tale of her scandalous love affair with British poet George Barker, first published in 1944, has been called one of the world’s half-dozen masterpieces of poetic prose.
Directed and choreographed by Laura Kolisnyk, with music direction by Phil Corrin, Obsession is both a dizzying ride on an emotional roller-coaster and a poignant tribute to a female writer ahead of her time.
“Goltsman-Ferris has a deft hand with a lyric and an even more astute ear for a melody… humming tunes that are hard to shake days later – a sure sign of a winner.” – Winnipeg Free Press
