The reviews are starting to come in and local newspaper critics are awfully effusive about The Playhouse, Madison Repertory Theater's new performance space "done in shades of deep eggplant," and the "positively luminous performance" of André de Shields, who plays the Stage Manager in the Rep's current production, Thornton Wilder's "Our Town."
I'm going to see the play next week -- and it won't just be to ogle the aubergine upholstery and the awesome André. I'm also going to be watching the performance of a professional actor who's a member of the Madison Central High School Class of 1965: Mickey Crocker (a.k.a Mickey Gartland). The play runs through March 12, 2006, and if you live in the Madison area, you too should make an effort to go see our classmate live and on stage. And I bet if you hang around after the show, she'll be glad to autograph your program.
