Worry About Legals

I can’t figure out what perplexes me more, the misinformation everywhere in the media or those who believe it to be true. Take the Hobby Lobby case; as a company that is primarily owned by a religious family, they felt their First Amendment rights were infringed upon by the “Affordable” Care Act...

Stop Labeling and Enjoy

I have been struggling to find a simple way of understanding for myself the concepts of conservative, liberal, and moderation as it relates to our social interactions with each other...

Proposal One & The Public Good

Are you kidding me? Another corporate giveaway with loopholes for large corporations who rule us? Hasn’t our corrupt and worthless governor done enough to raise taxes, provide corporate welfare, unjustly tax pensions, and shut down elected officials with his emergency manager racket...

The Truth About Road Workers

Apparently Mr. Kachadurian did not catch on to the fact that the MDOT Employee Memorial in Clare is a tribute to highway workers who lost their lives building our transportation systems. It was paid for by current and former MDOT employees who likely knew some of these people personally...

Idiotic and Misguided

As a seasonal resident, I always look forward to reading your paper, if only because of the idiotic letters to the editor and off the wall columns...

The Producers score a flip-flop

The Producers score a flip-flop

3/9/09


What happens when you aim for a flop on Broadway and wind up with a hit on your hands? That’s the plot of The Producers, running through March 28 at the Old Town Playhouse in Traverse City, with a cast of more than 30 staging one of the most celebrated musicals of all time.
The plot: “A down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history, thereby bilking their backers (all “little old ladies”) out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show, “Springtime For Hitler,” is a smash hit. The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show, hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds is a lesson in broad comic construction.”
Written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan, the musical is directed locally by Michelle Dungjen, with Sam Clark as music director and June Neal, producer. The cast includes:
Phil Murphy (Max Bialystock), Brian Dungjen (Leo Bloom), Brett Nichols (Franz Liebkind), Sherry White (Ulla Inga Hansen), Roger DeBris (Mike Nunn), Christopher Peterson (Carmen Ghia) and Diana Morgan (Hold Me-Touch Me). Singers and dancers include: Beverly Cady, Phil Callighan, Tom Cilluffo, Jamie Colburn, Darryn Crocker, David Curtis, Ty Curtis, Keith Firstenberg, Barbara Goodearl, Judy Heffron, Chris Lambdin, Toby Lucius, Diana DiMarco Morgan, Jamie Moyers, Meg Parker, Donna Peterson, Bradley Roswell, Clare Shipstead, Judy Sines, Margaret Anne Slawson, Elizabeth Stewart, Cat Tallman, Lesley Alicia Tye, Becca Walton and Kevin Weber.
