Muny tickets go on sale tomorrow. Normally this would elicit a shrug from me, but this year I’m actually excited about one of the shows. Hello, Dolly! is playing in August and it is one of the few musicals that I actually enjoy. I was in the chorus for my high school’s production back during my freshmen year in 1993, and I’ve had a soft spot for the show ever since. When I heard the 50th anniversary production was coming to St. Louis this year, I was mildly interested. That was until I saw the cast billing.
My high school theater director, Richard Pisarkiewicz, is in the principal cast! I loved Mr. ‘Zark back in my theater days, and think it would be a blast to see him on stage at the Muny. Tickets go on sale tomorrow, and Meg and I are planning on buying a pair. Anyone want to join us?
