What's Happening Around Town for February 14, 2013

Right Together, Left Together
Right Together, Left Together, an original musical by Pamela Eberhardt & Will Collyer will be presented by The Unknown Artists, February 21 – March 2 at Grove Theater Center. The new musical features book & lyrics by Eberhardt and music by Collyer, and will be directed by Nicole Dominguez, with music direction by Carmen Dominguez. The cast will feature Lucas Alifano, Jeff Scot Carey, Emily Clark, Jeni Incontro, Tripp Pettigrew-Rolapp, Katrina Rennells, and Bob Simpson. Taylor is getting married, and on the eve of her wedding, her friends come together for the rehearsal dinner to see her off… despite the fact that there’s a storm on the horizon. The charming musical combines elements of Friends, Will and Grace, Dawson’s Creek, and pretty much every late 90′s rom-com, with a piano-driven pop score, and a few inappropriate jokes for good measure. Right Together, Left Together is a guest production at GTC Burbank, 1111-b West Olive Avenue, Burbank, CA 91506.

The Phantom Tollbooth
MainStreet Theatre Company will end its 7th season with an adaptation of Norton Juster’s beloved children’s classic, The Phantom Tollbooth, directed by Jessica Kubzansky. The Phantom Tollbooth will run March 30 - April 14. Often compared to Alice In Wonderland because of its wonderful wordplay and sense of playfulness, the novel has been a children’s favorite since 1962. This musical version captures all the fantasy and delight of the original and brings it vividly to life. When a tollbooth mysteriously appears in Milo’s room, he follows the directions and drives through, only because he’s bored and has nothing better to do. But on the other side, things are very different.  He gets stuck in the Doldrums, befriends a ticking watchdog named Tock, meets the feuding kings of Dictionopolis and Digitopolis, and goes on a quest to rescue then princesses Rhyme and Reason in order to restore harmony to the land. Along the way, Milo defeats his demons, and discovers that everything we learn has a purpose and whatever we do affects everything and everyone. 

The adaptation’s book is by novelist Norton Juster and Broadway veteran Sheldon Harnick, with lyrics by Harnick, and music by Arnold Black. Sarah Gorman will provide choreography and the show’s 3 piece band will be led by musical director Janice Rodgers WainwrightThe cast includes Doug Harvey as Young Milo and Amanda Pauer as his alarm‐clock‐dog best friend, Tock, along with Gregrory North, Tim Cummings, Jane Noseworthy, Sammi Smith, and Amir Levi, all of whom will play multiple roles. The Phantom Tollbooth is appropriate for ages seven and up, and perfect for families to attend together. For tickets and information, please visit www.lewisfamilyplayhouse.com or call (909) 477-2752.
