For those of you who don't know, I just opened Fife Course Love with Minneapolis Musical Theatre last Friday. In this musical, myself and two other performers sing and dance our way to romance. I have the thrill of playing five different characters during the show.
First is the good 'ol country boy Dean, the gun-menu toting owner of Dean's BBQ. Next is the sad waiter Carlo, an Italian who is afraid his mobster boss will murder him for what he knows (and afraid that he will have to change his underpants...yet again). Thirdly is Heimlich (cough), the most fabulous, hip-swaying, bi-sexual headwaiter that Germany has ever had the pleasure to call on of her own. Ernesto is the fourth character, the cantina owner who duels for the hand of the woman he loves with a fiery passion. And finally is Pops, and old diner owner who has a little magic up his sleeve.
The production runs from now till February 16th. Tickets are available online at http://www.hennepintheatretrust.org/events/five-course-love-tickets-new-century-theatre-minneapolis-musical-theatre-2014.
