Broadway in West Michigan Series, 2004-05
Late Nite Catechism 2, Sept. 21-26, 2004, picks up
where "Late Nite Catechism" left off. Sister returns
and has assembled overhead projectors, mimeographed handouts,
felt banners, historical facts and hysterical insights as she
conducts her class into convulsions of laughter. No one is excused
from Sister's firm belief that "sometimes we feel guilty
because we are guilty."
The Producers, Nov. 30-Dec. 5, 2004, the new Mel Brooks
musical, is the story of a down-on-his-luck theatrical producer
and a mousy accountant who hatch the ultimate scam: raise more
money than you need for a sure-fire Broadway flop and pocket
the difference. The New York Times calls it "a blissful
spectacle that will leave you delirious."
Rent, Jan. 27-29, 2005, the most exuberant and original American musical to come along in a decade is taking the country by storm. "Rent" captures the heart and spirit of a generation and swept major theater awards, including the 1996 Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize.
Smokey Joe's Cafe, March 18-20, 2005, is Broadway's smokin' musical that turned many of the greatest hits of the '50s and '60s into one of the biggest blockbusters of the new century. From the juke-jumping jive of "Hound Dog" to the stand-up-and-cheer "Stand By Me finale," "Smokey Joe's Cafe" adds up to a perfect recipe for "Love Potion #9!"
