Weekend Rewind VII
FRIDAY: So glad it was Friday! Dinner, ER watching, then early (ish) to bed, because on… SATURDAY: was RAGTIME rehearsal #1! :) Just chorus rehearsals so far—actual auditions for parts are Memorial Day weekend. Based on what we did on Saturday morning, it’s going to be a great show. I loved seeing all the familiar summer musical faces and meeting new people. Hope to see more...

Theater Review--Mary Poppins (national tour)
(Anything Can Happen If You Let It, Act II) The “practically perfect” nanny has flown into town as part of the 5/3rd Bank Broadway Series, and for the most part, she lives up to expectations.

Hmmmm....musicals coming to town next season
So I just checked out the 2011-2012 Broadway Across America page for Columbus. Blue Man Group? Really? This counts? Mary Poppins (which I’m seeing on Thursday!) technically kicks off the new season. Next is Jersey Boys, then Billy Elliot. This is my “interested in seeing” list: Billy Elliot Shrek West Side Story. Yeah, of course I’ve seen the movie, and I learned the...
