• Riverboat,

    You make excellent points. I'll have to look for you in an upcoming performance.

    I imagine it's a challenge to book big names that will play Victoria. If you do, I suspect the ticket prices will be high. These two performers had legitimate Broadway credentials, but that apparently wasn't enough of a draw this time around. I'm just an armchair quarterback here, so I hope no one takes this as a criticism in any way of Theatre Victoria. I write this only in the spirit of wanting Victoria's already strong commitment to the arts in all forms to grow.

    From a newspaper standpoint, as I was listening to the performers tell stories on stage about their Broadway experiences, I wished we had published a longer interview with them about that. For those who were unable to attend, you missed a good show.

  • I would have loved to attend.  Money is in short supply, though, and this concert would have been better before Christmas, anyhow.  I'm getting to be more of a Willie Nelson type although I have been to broadway shows and New York in my day.  Most folks around here just want someone they're familiar with.  My husband says you didn't advertise it enough.  I saw where Victoria will host the western group "Riders in the sky".  We plan to go.  We saw them in Nashville and they were very entertaining.

  • Dear One,

    That's definitely a fair point. What person or show would you like to see come to Victoria?
