Theatre: Fall 2014

It is often hard to pick my favorite play or musical from a season, as I strongly enjoy nearly every one of them, but I have to say that Motown: The Musical stood out above the rest. It was so full of good energy and good memories for me (I’m of that age when Motown was what we listened to). The acting and singing were superb. Eleven plays for the season.

    The Sacramento News & Review had an end-of-year review of theatre, A year of reviews. They highlighted their top two theatre companies, Cap Stage and Big Idea Theatre, then same as mine. I saw most of the plays they mention, missing only a few.
