by Katherine Waddell - Feb 1, 2016

The Music Man opened Friday the 29th of January at The South Bend Civic Theatre with no detail spared on trying to make the classic musical come to life. The musical, whose book, music, and lyrics are by Meredith Willson with the story by both Willson and Franklin Lacey, became an instant hit in 1957 when it opened on Broadway. It won five Tony Awards, including 'Best Musical', and ran for more than 1,300 performances. It also inspired revivals, a film adaptation, a television remake, and won the first 'Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album'. (more...)

BWW Review: Lyric Music Theater's MUSIC MAN Has Heart and Hometown CharmBWW Review: Lyric Music Theater's MUSIC MAN Has Heart and Hometown Charm
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold - Nov 16, 2015

South Portland's venerable community theatre consistently presents ambitious and stylish productions of the standard Broadway canon, but in undertaking that most iconic of American musicals, The Music Man, it has demonstrated its extraordinary mettle and risen to the challenge with excellence. Mounting any production of Meredith Willson's beloved tale must inevitably confront legendary performances and productions of the past and, if it is to succeed, must find its own way into the piece, while still paying tribute to the musical and emotional values of a bygone era. Moreover, the company must command considerable creative resources to achieve the impact of this grand show. Director Charles Marenghi brings the classic story to life with warmth, heart, and hometown charm. (more...)
