Faithful readers will know that my Sweetie and I are fans (and
season ticket holders) of the Weathervane Playhouse here in
Newark. Here, here and here for a sample of previous posts
about this community gem.
Last weekend the troupe romped through Chicago, the finale of
the regular season. And a good season it was with Little Shop
of Horrors, 39 Steps, Big River, and Sound of Music rounding
out the playbill.
This year - a new tradition. Starting this Friday, the Playhouse
will have the first of nine performances of a musical
interpretation of Stud Terkel's oral history of The Good War.
Jen Bender, a real live Broadway director, will be in town to
direct the show as a way of honoring her friend, and ours, the
late Mathew Trombetta. More information here.
Do plan on attending.
