MSMT’s “Grease:” hurry to get tickets before they are ALL gone!


Mr. and Mrs. Side had the great pleasure of seeing the musical Grease at MSMT tonight on the Bowdoin Campus, on its ‘official’ opening night.  We have front row seats in Orchestra left, which really pulls us into a show like this.  So much, in fact, that your correspondent had an ever so brief surprise cameo appearance in the opening scene.

We’re posting this to tell you the show and the performances are stupendously good.  The production numbers are world class, lively, and infectious. 

You must, repeat MUST, try to see it.  They’ve added three matinees to try to accomodate the demand.  You’re gonna have to get busy immediately, on their web site, to try to lock tickets in.  You won’t be sorry, though we won’t be there to reprise our brief moment of fame.  That honor will fall to some unassuming schlub sitting in the same seat I had, more than likely.

It’s very clear that MSMT has been upping their game by great lengths in recent years.  The ‘production values,’ as we think of them, keep getting better and better.  We attribute this to the artistic leadership of Curt Dale Clark, who is the “host” in this video:

To repeat, we urge you not to miss it.  Especially if you are at all familiar with the music.  You will love it!
