Lawrenceville's Aurora Theatre, which has just opened the musical Academy, has announced the line-up for its 16th season:
A Chorus Line (Aug. 4-Sep. 4). The Tony-Award-winning, oft-satirized but affecting musical depicts a group of dancers who confess their hopes and dreams in monologue and song. If you saw the documentary Every Little Step, it should be particularly interesting to see the real thing.
Gray Area (Oct. 6-30) When a scathing theater critic and radio commentator (who can imagine such a person?) mocks Civil War re-enactors, three "good ole Dixie Boys" decide to exact their revenge in this comedy by John Ahlin.
Christmas Canteen 2011 (Nov. 25-Dec. 23) Aurora stages its perennial holiday show.
A Body of Water (Jan. 19-Feb. 12). A middle-aged couple awaken in a lakeside cottage with no memory of who they are or how they got there. A Walk in the Woods playwright Lee Blessing scripted this enigmatic drama.
Bonnie & Clyde: A Folktale (March 15-April 12 - rights pending) This lighthearted, historically dubious musical chronicles the careers of the notorious Depression-era bankrobbers.
A Fox on the Fairway (May 3-27) Stage-farce specialist Ken Ludwig pens this homage to 1930s English comedies in a mistaken-identity tale set at the Quail Valley Country Club. It sounds like one of P.G. Wodehouse's golf comedies.
Also, this Spring, the GGC Lab Series presents Barrio Hollywood (April 14-May 1), a drama in Spanish with English supertitles about a Mexican-American boxer pursuing a dream of success.\\
Heaven forbid if we have to pay for parking. What are we commies?
These are human beings, many with no other resources. We can close down places like…
"What is "world-class" anyway? It sounds like pure marketing and nothing that ought to inform…
"Nine out of 10 people who live "in" Atlanta choose not to live in Atlanta…
OMG! So not true. There are so many little gems that are hidden around that…
