Players from elsewhere can easily drive and park near to the theatre. As well as Bernstein, two other anniversary composers are featured on that day – George Gershwin, and the French composer Charles Gounod with a well-known piece that became legendary as the theme tune to the ‘Alfred Hitchcock Presents’ television series.
