BWW Review: A NIGHT OF MUSIC Marks Opening
History was made tonight as the Homewood Theatre had its first performance at the Dance Foundation. A NIGHT OF MUSIC is a cabaret type show featuring Homewood Theatre's founder Kyle Bass, along with Amy Johnson and Dana Porter.
Singing in duets, as a trio and individually, this group is comfortable together and seems to really enjoy their time on stage. With an audience full of family, friends and theatre heavy hitters to interact with, the three are in their element.
Kyle Bass and Amy Johnson have a fun duet with "Anything You Can Do", but Ms. Johnson's shining moment is while singing "Astonishing." She truly is astonishing.
Ms. Porter shows her singing and acting chops with "Alto's Lament". The group blends and has their best song together when singing "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?"
With a great mix of songs and comradery between the performers, the sold out audience enjoyed a special night with this new theatre group.
On a personal note, I have had a rough week. Although I had my ticket for tonight, I came very close to not going to this event. At the last minute I decided to attend anyway. As always, I found myself laughing, crying and once again being grateful for the emotions that good theatre can bring. I really don't see how you can go to a performance like tonight and not feel better about life, the world and the future. This is why theatre matters.
Tomorrow, August 20 at 7:30 is your only other chance to be a part of this new theatre group, so head to the Dance Foundation tomorrow night, go to www.homewoodtheatre.com or call 205-873-1816 for tickets. I think I might just go again, I need the entertainment.
