Calvalcade of Coverage

As is only fitting for the week after a bunch of shows opened, there have been a slew of reviews out there this week. Style’s got reviews of “Thoroughly Modern Millie” and “Summer of ‘42” in this week’s issue; I’ve seen them on the newstand but don’t have links to stories on the website yet (UPDATE: here's the link!) The Times-Dispatch covered “Thoroughly Thoroughly Modern Millie” and “Arsenic and Old Lace” on Monday. I expect (hope) we’ll see a “Summer of ‘42” review from the T-D soon.

And in case you read the lovely Ms. Steingold’s reference to my punk son in the comments for the previous post and are at all curious, here is a link to what I think she’s referring to. You can click on the photo to get a pretty ridiculously high-res version of the picture.

It’s tech week for “Oliver!” which explains at least a little of why I’ve been a lax blogger. I’ll be chiming in with thoughts on “Millie” tomorrow and hopefully more on “42” on Thurs. That's the plan, at least...

Yeah, that's basically what I was talking about- if you go to www.virginia.edu, at the top right corner they have a slideshow of photos from the week at UVA, and he's in one of them! It's cool when they put theatre pics on there- usually it's football players or politicians.

i agree mr. timberline. I think it also points to a lack of enthusiasm by the majority of the richmond populous. How do theaters engage new audiences and stimulate interest in a medium that garners less respect in thriving arts community? Then maybe wednesdays would be a great night for theater and companies could afford to provide shows on those nights.

The same week "Arsenic and Old Lace" was reviewed by the Progress Index in Petersburg. The Progress-Index review on 6/25/09 noted "Copious laughter burst through the audience many times during the production", "the cast received a most deserved standing ovation" and "See the show". - http://www.progress-index.com/articles/2009/06/25/editorial/pi_progindex.20090625.b.pg8.pi25parlier_b2.2625158_edi.txt
