Hello all!

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.

This is the end of the song "Right Man for the Job."  Which man, you ask?  What job?  Come to the show and see!

Action shot!  Believe it or not, Dan Sharkey can use that rifle to hang Jeff Edgerton's coat on a peg.

Why is Mike Rosengarten (who is also a member of the band, doing double duty on banjo and mandolin (though not at the same time)) wearing an apron?  Another mystery that can only be solved if you see the show....

Nobody makes crazy eyes quite like Scott Wakefield.  Carol Hickey is either listening very attentively or fearing for her life.  Or perhaps both.
