Virginia Repertory Theatre just opened its 2019-2020 season with the Tony-Award-winning A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER. Patrons should not be fooled by its title. Wherewith a darker musical massacre, Sweeney Todd, there was gore and the macabre; this sidesplitting bloodbath is perfectly appropriate for most audiences. Propelled by a first-rate cast, murder has never been so clever and entertaining.

The view looks pretty good from a pair of platform shoes. Heck, even on an idyllic, Greek island resort there's not a moment of stress and strain that can't be cured by breaking into the hits of Sweden's number one pop group, ABBA. If you want to get your groove back to the tune of 'Dancing Queen,' 'Waterloo,' or 'Take A Chance on Me' - along with a boatload of other ABBA tunes - get thee to Riverside Center and - to quote one of the lyrics - ' you'll be having the time of your life.'
