First, I have to tell you about this really fun event!
I truly feel that Hair is such an integral part of entertainment history. It’s been around for two generations now and it is still as relevant today as it was then.
Celebrating its fiftieth year, The Patchogue Theatre put together a fun concert version of the musical. I was especially thrilled they were able to get two people I liked from the early days of American Idol who also happened to be in the Broadway revival cast WHO ALSO happen to be married, Diana DeGarmo and Ace Young. They also were able to also get the wonderful entertainer Lauren Molina and several people from Broadway and beyond. I’m grateful to my friend (who also joined me) in finding this event! Talk about good luck!
The Patchogue Theatre is sooooooooo beautiful, too. Should be after a million-plus dollar renovation! LOL Located right on Main Street, there are a million things to do before and/or after the show, so you can really make an afternoon/night out of it. My friend and I chose the pizza place right next door to the theatre called DelFiore. OMG it was DELISH!! I’ll write up on that soon! And another great theatre company, The Gateway, also books TPT for their shows.
See my write up here!
Anywhoo, this weekend I’m seeing one of my faves (In The Heights) at one of my faves (The John W. Engeman Theatre). My write up will be posted next week!
Have a great weekend!
