                     “Mamma Mia” Sizzles at The Muny This Week

by Pat Lindsey

Anyone who enjoys the music of the 1970s Swedish group, ABBA, is in for a treat this week at The Muny with its debut of the musical “Mamma Mia.” Somehow, a collection of ABBA songs, including “Dancing Queen” and “Our Last Summer,” have been woven together to create a story centered on a 20 year-old bride-to-be, Sophie Sheridan, who wants to find out who her father is before she marries.

Young Frankenstein is a Brainy,

Zany Night of Comedy at the Muny


by Pat Lindsey

   In typical Mel Brooks style, “Young Frankenstein” debuted on The Muny stage this week with zany humor that’s often silly, but always laughable.

“The Music Many” is Homemade Jelly,

Applie Pie and Sweet, Sweet Melodies

By Pat Lindsey

“The Music Man” chugged into our own River City Tuesday night with nary a trouble—that is until the townspeople got wise to Professor Harold Hill’s lies and deceit. He promised to create a marching band in three weeks by using the “Think System,” but no one who ordered a band uniform, instruction book, and instrument learned to play one note. The people of River City are so angry that a con artist has swindled them out of their money that they hunt down Professor Hill to tar and feather him, but Marian the librarian comes to his rescue and points out just how much value everyone has received from the man who has failed to produce his academic and musical credentials.
