I LOVE the theatre and have ever since I saw the original production of “Oklahoma” on Broadway in 1943 when I was 7 years old—okay I KNOW you weren’t born yet!!!– I wanted to be Alfred Drake who played the original Curly and then a couple of years later I wanted to be John Riatt when I saw him play Billy in “Carousel”–sadly I couldn’t carry a tune. In any case since then I have seen thousands of plays and musicals and the lights going down in a theatre before the show starts still sends a shiver down my spine!

Luckily, about 4 years ago, Corine, who has 2 show business related web sites– and–contacted me about reviewing toruing companies of Broadway shows and it is like being in theatre heaven for me. Tonight I will be going to see the opening night of the touring company of  “The Book of Mormon” in Fort Lauderdale at the Broward Performing Arts center and I can’t wait. Look for my review.

(An aside–before the show we will be having an early dinner/late lunch at the Dubliner Irish Pub not too far from the theatre!)

This a partial copy of the publicity release I received:
