I just arrived at Millett Hall for tonight’s performance of the Pirates of Penzance. The part of Major General Stanley will be played by Justin Greene.
The staff here at the Theatre would like to have everyone seated by the second dimming of the lights.
No, none of that’s true. Although this always feels like dinner theatre whenever I’m here at Millett Hall with its dark setting and soft cushiony olive green seats set far away from the floor. It actually reminds me of the old Front Row Theatre, which would mean the floor should turn … Hey, there’s an idea. Make it like Hank’s Look-Around Cafe from the old Larry Sanders Show. Only problem is the mechanics to that kept breaking down for old Hank.
Dinner Theater is what Jim Christian always used to call basketball at Millett Hall, and he coached here. It’s just such an odd setting. There is actually some truth to the above, though, in that the part of Justin Greene will not be played by an understudy. Greene is in costume … I mean uniform … and he’ll be ready for curtain.
Obviously the matchup to watch is Greene vs. Julian Mavunga.
Experienced crew tonight with Lamont Simpson as the referee and Larry Scirotto and Bill Ek playing the roles of umpires.
