Curtain up

I’ve been seeing lots of live performance lately, most notably the musical Wicked, at the Gershwin Theater on Broadway when I was in NYC a couple of weekends ago. But we have our own fine theater traditions here in the TC, as I was talking about with someone I met in New York. Rob worked in a theater management position out east and was contemplating relocating, so I had to talk up our own little Mini-Apple. He expressed great outrage at the possibility of Clear Channel owning a part of our Historic Theater group; hopefully I’ll be able to send him some good news on that front.

Right before I left, I saw Miss Richfield 1981‘s holiday show at the Illusion Theater. I’d never seen Miss Richfield perform a show before and she’s a riot. Thanks to Mikhail for asking me to help him usher and thus allowing me to see the show for free.

Tonight, I’m heading across the river to the Ordway to see On the Record, some new musical from Disney, that features songs from their entire film and recording history. I don’t know too much about it, except that they’re not recreating scenes from the films for the show.

For the New year, I’m going to make a concentrated effort to see more live performances, local thater, live music, and basically participate more in our art scene. How long is it until the 2005 Fringe Festival?
