So many things are going on….can you take a long break??? Now there is a play called Gem of the Ocean. This is one of August Wilson's famed "Pittsburgh Cycle," ten plays about residents of that city's Hill District. It's a mixture of fantasy and harsh reality, as 285-year old Aunt Ester leads a community for whom slavery is an all-too-vivid memory. Visit humanrace theatre.org.
Do you have tunes for Rosemary Clooney like Come On-A My House and Mambo Italiano?
I heard both of those and many others at the Victoria a couple of nights ago. The Human Race has a new musical that captures Rosemary Clooney’s career. It’s all about the challenges she faced as wife, mother and performer and these are related with her nervous breakdown, depression and drug addiction.
This whole weekend is the Muse Machine’s musical The Wizard of OZ.This show has all star kids all over the region with true professional Broadway coaches . They’re doing a superb show at the Victoria.
And at the Schuster there are Three Phantoms in Concert. These guys have all been leading tenors in that famous show and they will be doing all kind of Broadway tunes. Check it out daytonphilharmonic.org
