Knowing my weekend was filled and I'd have to miss the full production, I sat in on part of the dress rehearsal on Thursday for Indianapolis Civic Theatre's concert version of "Camelot." I'd love to hear from anyone who saw the full production.
Friday meant the Indianapolis Opera's season opening production of "Ariadne auf Naxos" (more on that later). Then it was a run to Chicago for the gloriously silly--as well as beautifully sung and danced--revival/rediscovering of "Animal Crackers" and a revisit to the coming-this-season-to-Indy "Jersey Boys."
Why the second look at the Four Seasons musical? First, because it's a blast. Second, because I'll be hosting a live on-stage interview with "Jersey Boys" cast members on Oct. 19 at the Murat Theatre and I wanted to look more closely about what makes it work so well.
So what did I miss?
