As of this very writing, we are 72 days, 4 hours, and a handful of minutes away from the orchestra playing the first chords of LES MISERABLES at the Civic Center Music Hall. It is going to be one of the biggest shows Lyric has ever produced. There are over 40 members of the cast, and a large choir as well. The costume shop estimates that they'll be producing over 400 costumes for this show alone!
It seems like everywhere I look these days, I see a new list-style blog, with titles like "The 24 Weirdest Things Ever Seen On The London Underground" or "The 17 Funniest Dog Pranks". TRIANGLE is consuming many of my thoughts, and I couldn't help but compose my own top list of why you should not miss the limited engagement of TRIANGLE: A NEW MUSICAL . And, it's even illustrated with photos!
Long before the rehearsal process for a show begins, hours and hours of work have been put into the production already. Marketing materials are developed, designers have made renderings and plans, and the stage manager has drawn up breakdowns, run sheets, and complex schedules to make the show run like clockwork.
After each performance of TRIANGLE, we invite you to a 30 minute post show discussion of the show. These discussions are an opportunity for the audience to chat about the play with Lyric's Artistic Director Michael Baron and his guests. As an audience member, you will gain greater enjoyment and understanding of TRIANGLE by attending these discussions.
This question has a very complex answer that can be summed up best by this simple cartoon depicting a famous C.S. Lewis quote.

Can you believe it? Emmy Award-winning actress and Oklahoma City native Megan Mullally will return to Lyric's stage for the first time since 2004 in MEGAN MULLALLY AND STEPHANIE HUNT ARE "NANCY AND BETH". The actresses will perform their bawdy and edgy comedic rock show for one night only on Thursday, Feb. 20 at 8 p.m. at the Plaza Theatre.
Just a week ago, students from Lyric's Thelma Gaylord Academy presented their first production of the new school year, GODSPELL, JR., at the Plaza Theatre. The show was a great success. One of the cast members, Kyra Williford, 13, wrote an essay for school about her experience in the show. We enjoyed Kyra's essay so much, we thought we would let you read it, too. We're thankful to be able to share the magic of musical theatre with the youth of Oklahoma.
