I, Rachel, blogger/AD from The Dome, am born anew as blogger/AD for Prospect’s new show, Golden Boy of the Blue Ridge, as well. Rehearsals went by in a flash, and I’ve woefully neglected this blog. But I promise to be better about it from here on out.
If you haven’t seen Golden Boy yet, you should. It runs at 59 E 59 Theaters, Theater B, until May 3rd. Even though I’m not exactly an unbiased observer, I can say with total certainty that this show, created by Peter Mills and Cara Reichel, is funny and smart and delightful. And the songs are all ridiculously tuneful and stay with you–but in a good way (I personally end up with “Inlaws and Outlaws” and “More to Me” stuck in my head most often). And! Moreover! We not only have a great cast but also a band that does double-duty as actors.
More to follow, including some cross-posting from Mr. Mills’ own blog; in the meantime, some photos from our final dress, taken by Gerry Goodstein.
