Marie, Dancing Still

April 3, 2019

This is the title of the show we saw last night. It’s a new musical, trying to make it to Broadway.

I think it has a chance, and I would be able to say, “I saw it when…”. Aside from the actors and dancers, they did some projections on the scenery that I thought were compelling. In the opening number they add color in brushstrokes as Marie dances around the stage. During intermission they projected Degas’ sketches for the sculpture on the curtain.

The picture frame effect around the stage was also a nice touch. The singing was good as well. Carl thinks they may be missing a hook song, the one you leave the theater singing.

All in all, an entertaining night out.

And the Mariners won, again. 7 and 1. Carl did attend batting practice before the show. He wanted to hear a former charge’s choir sing the anthem (during their practice run), and spent some time with her parents and grandparents. He also got 4 baseballs. And for those that stayed for the game, it was over well before the play, just 2 hours 16 minutes.

Time for an early evening.
