“Please spell excited.”
“Excited. E – X – C -I – T – E – D. Excited.”
“You are correct!”
Yes, I’m excited to see this production! I posted the full cast as well as the photos from the production a few weeks back. I’ve only seen this show once (at San Jose Rep last Summer) and I’m interested to see what Jay Manley, the director, has done! Foothill’s Lohman Theatre is definitely a more intimate space than San Jose Rep and I’m hoping that will make us feel like we are all actually in the Spelling Bee! (Even though, as an audience member, you do have a chance to be an actual speller!)
It opens this weekend (February 19th) – though you can head over there on Thursday night for “free preview night”. But make sure you get there early because I have a feeling it might fill up!
I’ll be looking out for David Cates, Kateri McRae, Kristin Walter and Walter Mayes!
Of course, if you do see it then let us all know what you think.
