Ms. Heath's lighting design is sublime indeed. Though subtle, I think the sound, by Carter McHaan, is excellent as well.
I think so to. It needs to find some distinguishing characteristics still. But the foundation is good-- tried and true.
Saw last weekend Saturday and while a little passive in some spots I found this to be a very moving and relatable play. Bravo to all involved!!
Anyone know how many employees and other staff will be here on a daily basis? How many others are expected to come for lessons, recitals, etc. a day? And how many parking spaces will there be upon completion of the building and site? Those who work in and frequent Overton Square are a bit curious.
Right? I'm a bit of an audiophile and record collector and always enjoy this show. It really succeeds where so many jukebox/pop/rock musicals just don't. Couldn't make press night this go-round due to conflicts. Hated it.
Boston and Orlando have music communities? I had no idea. Frankie camps? I had no idea. I've seen this stage production before - on Broadway the year it won the Tony for Best Musical and a couple of years later in Las Vegas. But the music is fun and I'll see it again at the Orpheum on Saturday.
She was one amazing woman and I'm looking forward to meeting her in the new world. 😊
Mark, she looks great, but no.
Damn she looks better now than she did 35yrs ago! Badass tough woman.
I loved the production. Still thinking about weeks later. I agree that Shaleen's character has a disturbing journey. I need to read the script...just thinking if the playwright could have developed that character more, though I truly admired the brevity and tautness of the story.
Shaleen's character really has one of the most interesting and disturbing journeys, I think.
Merits its own sub-thread really, and I regret not working him into the review.
The other character, Abe, nephew to Amir, is played by Shaleen Cholera. His is a most interesting journey.
Great article and tribute to two actors of renown. Jo Lynne and Jim Palmer - induvidually and together - have richly enhanced - and continue to so enhance - theater and the theater community. They are richly deserving of the honor to be bestowed on them this evening. Congratulations, dear friends.
Congratulations to my two deserving friends. Trip to Bountiful was a great experience indeed.
These two are inspiring examples for all artists every where.
Great stuff. These two deserve everything good they get. Marler Stone
All hail the Palmers! Love you two!
Loved this article. Love these folks. Congratulations, kids. There are none more deserving.
