A visit from Gail Carson Levine, author of ELLA ENCHANTED

Bringing a bout of beautiful spring weather with her, Gail Carson Levine, author of Ella Enchanted, made a visit to Milwaukee the weekend of April 16-17.

 After giving a talk and book signing at Boswell Book Company, Gail attended First Stage's world premiere production of ELLA ENCHANTED at the Marcus Center's Todd Wehr Theater. Immediately following the performance, the author participated in an extended talkback answering audience questions about the themes in ELLA ENCHANTED.

On Sunday, First Stage patrons gathered for an intimate author's brunch at the Intercontinental Hotel. The event offered a chance to get a sneak peak of the play and the creative process behind bringing a literary work to the stage.
