Kevin as Edward Rutledge in "1776"

Another nice day in LA.

Aside from my puppy hunting (and finding) yesterday, I had a great day of theatre viewing. :) Not only did I see a great production of one of my favorite musicals (1776), but I also got to see the opening night of a new musical and see Misty in a great role. :)

1776

My theatre day started at Crossley Theatre, which is in Hollywood very near to the Write Act (where I saw "It Came From Beyond" almost exactly two years ago.) I'd never been to this theatre before, but was pleasantly surprised. Like the Write Act, it's held within a church, but was rather large in size and was able to accommodate an orchestra as well as a pretty good sized set and audience.

Those who know me, know that 1776 is one of my all time favorite musicals and I've seen several different versions of this show - so nothing pleased me more than getting to see yet another interpretation of this incredible show.

All in all it was a very good small scale production of the show and I'm so glad that I got the chance to see it.

If anyone is interested, here are my impressions of the Music Circus production I saw in Sacramento last year.

I have so much more to write about, most notably my views on Misty and her performance in "Twice Upon A Time" last night in Redondo Beach, but I have to get going and run some errands before I rush out to the matinee of "Orson's Shadow". Tonight I have the evening performance of Nick's show "Thrill Me" at the Hudson Backstage.

Hope you're all having a nice weekend! Big HUGS to you all. :)
