A Musical . . . At Last


Soundstage Productions is a "reader's theatre" company, meaning it mounts staged readings of plays, accented with projected photos and the occasional prop or bit of costuming to enhance the experience. It's a more effective method of storytelling than you might anticipate because it's a very pure form of storytelling; a good actor with a great voice can conjure a world of feeling, especially if you're an active listener. So how would the classic musical fit the reader's theatre mold? Only one way to find out — Soundstage presents ...At Last, a new musical written by Leona Ernst and Laura Ernst.
