Here's a link to a great review of Wayside Theatre's Smoke on the Mountain Homecoming from the Northern Va Daily. I'm going to pull a couple of choice quotes that speak to not only the excellence of the artists performing the show, but life in live professional theatre in general.
Here's te first one:
Watching "Homecoming" is like witnessing a masterpiece constructed live on stage -- having no idea what goes into it until you see it performed, and afterward still not knowing how they made it all work.
The ability of the actors to not only perform the script so well, but simultaneously play an instrument version of musical chairs, is stunning.
Our job always has been and always will be to make it look easy, effortless, and magical. That's the fun part of our challenge. We're blessed with the quality of professional talent that comes to play for our audiences here in the Northern Shenandoah Valley. They love doing so and you can feel that love in every note, every line, or every second of every performance.
I hope you make the effort to come and see these efforts these wonderful artists make to help create a little magic for you.
