Today was the closing performance and then strike for Moonlight and Magnolias. It was a great show. Just this last week, Potomac Stages picked the show as a must see in the Washington DC area. It is always sad to see a show close, and this was one of the sadder ones. The cast, Peter Boyer, Chris Reeder, Chris Todd, and Leah Raulerson, were all wonderful and provided a lot of great laughs for audiences.
But like all shows this one has reached the end of its run, and we got rid of all of the bananas and peanuts and now move on to donuts and sex farce.
Always Patsy Cline has one more week to play while we continue to rehearse Unnecessary Farce. It will almost seem like a vacation with only two shows to worry about this week. But not really. We’ve got a lot coming up and we’ll all be a bit crazy here pretty much up to the holidays. But hey that’s a life in the theatre.
