The people are gone. The doors are locked. Darkness descends inside a department store. Fleeing the pressures of the outside world, an unhappy poet is at last alone. But not quite. In his newfound sanctuary, he comes across a group of hermits who have been hiding there for years. Among them is a young girl with whom he falls in love.
Created especially for television, Evening Primrose aired only once on ABC Stage 67. Starring Anthony Perkins and Charmian Carr, the production featured a teleplay adapted by James Goldman (from a short story by John Collier) and a score that included some of Stephen Sondheim's most hauntingly beautiful songs - among them 'If You Find Me, I'm Here" and 'Take Me to the World".
This long-lost treasure is now available for the first time ever - impeccably restored and re-mastered from a pristine kinescope print.
