One Night Only
Monday night I went to Glendale's gorgeous Alex Theater to see the Musical Theater Guild's production of "Hello Again" by Michael John LaChiusa.
Boy, the cast was talented but I was disappointed by the material (based on the structure of the 1897 play "La Ronde").
A few years ago I saw LaChiusa's new musical "The Wild Party" and was thrilled by it. So maybe my expectations going in were high.
The Musical Theater Guild utilizes a pretty interesting format -- they rehearse a show for only 25 hours and then perform it "one night only."
So I guess they aren't reliant on word of mouth to move tickets.
