From what we're hearing this morning it sounds like Southern Crossroads, the musical that Steve Przybylski and I put together back in 2009 has turned into a hit at Circa 21 Dinner Playhouse in Rock Island, Il. It's still early (and I think most of the cast and crew are sleeping it off after a successful opening night and presumably one hell of a party), but from the few emails we've gotten and Facebook posts, everyone seems thrilled with the show, most importantly, the audience!
This sounds like the second successful production of the show since its premiere at Wayside Theatre in 2009, the last at Totem Pole Playhouse this past summer. That one garnered a standing ovation for every performance as audiences just fell in love with the story, the characters, the music, and the fun.
I'm looking forward to seeing the Circa 21 production in a few weeks and meeting the new family members of the Greene Family Singers and all who poured their hearts into this latest production. Thanks to all who worked so hard to make this a success at Circa 21 and congrats on a wonderful opening night.
