Chocolatespoon: Emily’s Musings

Now playing…

Posted on: September 20, 2006

I wish I had more time… look what’s playing locally!

Tick, Tick….Boom!
Bus Barn Stage Company
September 6-September 30, 2006
A musical look at the courage it takes to follow your dreams, TICK, TICK… BOOM! is Jonathan Larson’s autobiographical tale of a young composer on the brink of turning 30 and falling into oblivion. His girlfriend wants to get married and move out of the city, his best friend is making big bucks on Madison Avenue, yet Jon is still waiting on tables and trying to write the great American musical.
Saw this one years ago and loved it — and I think it’s one of Eduard’s all time favorites.

Angels in America Part One: Millennium Approaches
City Lights Theater Company
September 14-October 15, 2006
Set against the AIDS crisis in the mid-80’s, this award winning epic tale of heaven and earth takes aim at many of humankind’s most immediate and troubling issues. It exposes our weaknesses, extolls our strengths, and weaves a magical, inspiring tale of suffering and survival.
I’ve never actually seen this on stage — just the HBO version which I was totally engrossed by.

But this weekend is booked up with services and the Taste of Morgan Hill (come by Sunday and say hello to me at the Friends of the Library booth from 10-12)

And of course I still want to get to the Renaissance Fair before it leaves…
