It’s all about the words. Which is what makes this weekend’s By the Sea Productions staged reading of Jason Odell Williams’ play “Church & State” so powerful.
If you haven’t seen the movie or the live show, PCPA’s current production is a must-see. Even if you’ve seen it many times over, experiencing “The Sound of Music” through the fresh eyes of the PCPA family is guaranteed to warm your heart. Bring your family and yes, your eyes and ears—after all, what’s really so bad going about your daily routine humming “Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens . . .”?
So . . . you might be a little confused when the curtain rises on The Great American Melodrama’s latest offering in Oceano: “Butch Cassidy and the Sunburnt Kid.” That’s because, in true Melodrama fashion, almost everyone onstage throughout the production fumbles with Butch’s friend’s name, never getting to Sunburnt, let alone Sundance.
