‘Big Broadcast’ to benefit Zaslove’s theater company
Tuesday, July 08, 2014 4:02 PM
Jack Benny and Rochester. George Burns and Gracie Allen. Vic and Sade. The gang from Allen’s Alley. If you miss these old friends, you can meet up with them again (along with Baby Snooks, a couple of U.S. presidents and some surprise guests) at the Century Ballroom (915 E. Pine St.) on July 18 at 8 p.m.
Queen Anne director Arne Zaslove is convening a special reunion with “The Big Broadcast,” a benefit for his Hit and Run Theatre Company. Last year, the theater company staged three productions: an environmental staging of “Our Town” in the Century Ballroom; a revue of Tom Lehrer’s “Poisoning Pigeons in the Park”; and the premiere of a new play, “The Realm of Whispering Ghosts: If Truman Met Einstein.”
Joining the company for this special performance (under the musical direction of Teresa Metzger Howe) are Bathhouse Theatre regulars G. Valmont Thomas, Faye B. Summers, Randy Hoffmeyer, Gretchen Orsland, Timothy Hyland, John Patrick Lowrie, Ellen McLain, Leslie Law, David F. White and Lawrence Albert. Tickets are available at www.brownpapertickets.com.
