I dropped by our theater yesterday to see how our new season was coming along. In the Bon Vivant theater, the cast of A Midsummer Night's Dream were getting acquainted with the woods near Athens. Oberon and Puck were already making their plans.
Hermia was lying on the forest floor, taking notes:
Bottom was already transformed into an ass (some would say he was born that way) and was adored by Titania.
And by her fairies too.
Meanwhile, downstairs in the Osborne, the intergalactic crew of Return to the Forbidden Planet were learning to sing some good old rock and roll under the dubious direction of the leader of the band Head Full of Zombies, who wanted no part of paparazzi.
I stayed long enough to remember one thing: Amy Sue Hardy sure can sing. I have it on excellent authority she was the clearly the best voice in the late lamented CFWT's Singing with the Stars contest last year, even though, inexplicably, she did not win. You may have heard her before, and I promise you will want to hear her again. Her back-up group ain't bad either--they are goofy cute too.
Looks like it's going to be a summer full of invention and good cheer--exactly what we need!
