We sat down with Diana Lobb, director of our upcoming production of Blood Relations, to talk about the show and her vision for it. In this post she talks about Lizzie Borden, both the historical person and the character in the play.
As Jonathan mentioned in his last post, The Merchant of Venice was a collaboration with local jazz musician Tom Nagy. Tom wrote a score to accompany the production; here he is talking about the music and the process of putting it all together.
Our production of The Merchant of Venice makes some bold choices in its setting (the Jazz Age), its conclusion (immediately following the trial), and its costuming (with most of the characters en masque). Director Jonathan Dietrich has shared some of his thoughts behind those choices with us.
Based on a story in The Weekly World News, BAT BOY: THE MUSICAL is a musical comedy/horror show about a half boy/half bat creature who is discovered in a cave near Hope Falls, West Virginia. Taken to the family of the local veterinarian, Bat Boy is lovingly raised as one of their own, but when the townsfolk learn of his dark secret, will they embrace him or destroy him? BAT BOY: THE MUSICAL originally opened off-Broadway, quickly became a cult hit and has now found its way to KWLT. Should you come see it? You'd be batty to miss it!
