“Dear World” follows Countesses Aurelia, Constance and Gabrielle, who scheme up a plan to stop businessmen from drilling for oil in the Parisian neighborhood of Chaillot. Written as a pithy social commentary, while living in Switzerland during World War II, Giraudoux’s “bad men” are corporate fascists, driven by narcissism, greed and a thirst for power. His heroine, Countess Aurelia, who stands firmly against corruption, would fit right into the political climate of today. Stars Tyne Daly as Countess Aurelia. Written by Jerry Herman, with music by Jerry Herman, and directed by David Lee, it runs one night only on September 30 at the Valley Performing Arts Center in Northridge.
