I had the pleasure and privilege of directing Shaw's Pygmalion this Spring, and earlier this week, saw The Goodman Theater's exquisite revival of Brigadoon, featuring a slightly altered libretto. Not having seen this musical for almost 50 years, I was so pleased. Alas, not so with the Guthrie's My Fair Lady. I've seen two other productions prior to this one: a four-hour high school rendering that was just plain awful, and a 1978 tour starring Edward Mulhare and the original sets. I expect I'm not destined to ever see a good stage version of this greatest of musicals.

Hello, Dolly! good reason to come in from the cold
By Mindy Mateuszczyk
Hello, Dolly! is now performing at Lyric Arts Main Street Stage. It’s a delightful voyage into the classic musical theatre genre. Beth King, is a successful and endearing Dolly Gallagher Levi who moves the story ahead with wit, charm and solid acting.
Alyssa Wyatt, as Irene Malloy, delivers pitch perfect vocals. Her convincing rendition of “Ribbons Down My Back” is worth the price of admission alone.

Back before the tenth anniversary of 9/11 and long security lines at airports, the airlines may have been a sexy place. That’s the impression we get in a night of farce during “Boeing-Boeing” by Marc Camoletti at St. Croix Off Broadway Dinner Theatre located at the Best Western Hudson House Inn.
