Hey you guys! Good times last night at Penny Lane Pub for the post Rickie II champagne reception. Grant Mudge was beaming with pride over the cast and production- it could have been a toothpaste commercial with all the smiling going on in there. But of course the happiest person of all in the room was Scott Wickman(sp?) who was glowing over the Red Sox win yesterday ( we have that Red Sox love in common, me and Scott you know, its a Boston thing). There were the usual toasts to the director and cast but a special toast went out to Cynde Liffick, RS Ed Director to her belated birthday (day before yesterday). Happy Birthday, Cynde!
During my travels about town today I stopped in at the Firehouse and chatted with Firehouse TD Tadd and got a peak at Ed Slipeck's set for "Spinning Into Butter" and let me tell you it is wonderful so far! One of the best sets -strike that- The Best set I've ever seen at Firehouse and it isn't even painted yet. Let's hope this is the beginning of a constant scenic upgrade for them which will enhance all those wonderful performances and make attending Firehouse productions that much more enjoyable. Nice work so far guys! But alas, I do not get to review "Spinning" as Dave "I get first pick" Timberline gets to. But I promise to come see it.
Tried to get a review of Theatre IV's "Stuart Little" out of my seven year old daughter who saw it with my mom this afternoon but no luck. All she said was that she didn't recognize anyone in the cast. So that must mean that Corey Davis is such a great actress that Elinor didn't recognize her from the "Austin's Bridge" cast.
Thoughts on Richard II later....
