So what do you do on a dreary Sunday afternoon in late March???
Why go to Broadway of course!!!
Yesterday afternoon Mr. Rosemary Lane and myself took our two little (well not so little anymore) Rosemary Lanettes to the theater district in New York City to see my absolute favorite musical in the entire world...
To describe the show in one word....
that would be...mmm...tough one...now let me think...yes this one will pretty much sum it up...
It was a particularly energized audience and cast yesterday as the two lead actors were performing their final show together.
Patina Miller and Matthew James Thomas received resounding applause after each and every number.
And at the end of the production we were sitting close enough to see the tears in eyes of several cast members.
Miller soared as she revived Ben Vareen's award winning role of the Leading Player, or as I like to call the part, the "Master of Ceremonies".
Another huge thrill was to see Annie Potts live on stage in the roll of Berthe, Pippin's granny. Potts just joined the Pippin cast in January of this year. She was wonderful as she sang "No Time At All" while gyrating around on the trapeze.
And the acrobatics performed during the show were phenomenal!!!
This new production of Pippin incorporates the worlds of both musical theater and that of the circus seamlessly for a show which will doing nothing short of taking your breath away!
We all loved the production, just watching the You Tube trailer gives me the goosie!
And the music...oh the music...there is no other way to put it,
was simply out of this world!
Happy Monday everyone!!!
