She just got another new wig to play a saucy Italian mistress and sing/speak in matching accent.
Because this red (on the right) simply wouldn’t do! 😉
From the Tallahassee Democrat’s regional Chronicle:
After a 2008-2009 season that included a trip to Tacoma, Wash., for the national community theater festival following first-place wins at state and regional levels, Theatre A La Carte is spending the 2009-2010 season celebrating its 20th anniversary.
Although Theatre A La Carte is an all-volunteer organization that has never owned a building and primarily depends on ticket sales and private donations to cover production costs, the group has been successfully producing top-quality musical theatre in Tallahassee since 1990.
The 20th Anniversary Season officially opens Feb. 26 with a production of the multiple-Tony-Award winning musical “The Light in the Piazza.” In the summer of 1953, Margaret Johnson, the wife of an American businessman, is touring Italy with her daughter, Clara. A chance encounter with Fabrizio, a handsome Florentine, sparks an immediate and intense romance for Clara. As “The Light in the Piazza” unfolds, a secret is revealed: in addition to the cultural differences between the young lovers, Clara is not quite all that she appears.
The musical won five 2005 Tony Awards. The award-winning score for “The Light in the Piazza” was written by Adam Guettel, grandson of legendary composer Richard Rodgers (“Oklahoma!,” “The Sound of Music,” “The King and I”) and son of composer Mary Rodgers (“Once Upon a Mattress”). Theatre A La Carte’s production is one of the first community theatre productions of this beautiful new musical.
Performances of “The Light in the Piazza” will be held at 8 p.m. Feb. 26 and 27, and March 5 and 6, with matinees at 2 p.m. Feb. 28 and March 7, at Tallahassee Little Theatre, Thomasville and Betton Roads. All seating is reserved. Tickets are $16, $14 for students and seniors. To purchase tickets, call 224-8474 or visit http://www.theatrealacarte.org.
