West Michigan Wednesday

“The Fantasticks” opens this weekend at Muskegon Civic Theatre and I cannot wait to see it. As always, here is the blurb from the website:

“The Fantasticks is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, and their two fathers who try to keep them apart. The narrator, El Gallo, asks the audience to use their imagination and follow him into a world of moonlight and magic. The boy and the girl fall in love, grow apart, and finally find their way back to each other after realizing the truth in El Gallo’s words that ‘without a hurt, the heart is hollow’.”

“Accomplice” opened last weekend at Muskegon Civic Theatre and continues the run this weekend and next. As always, here is the blurb from the website:

Winner of the Mystery Writers of America’s coveted “Edgar” award (the “Oscar” of crime and suspense) and written by Tony award winner Rupert Holmes, Accomplice has thrilled audiences on Broadway, across the United States and around the word. The New York Times has called it “a deliciously witty cocktail of a whodunit, with pretzel turns in a maniacally seamless plot where skullduggery emerges the winner.” This theatrical roller coaster triggers screams of laughter even as audiences vow to keep its secrets hush-hush. The story begins in Dartmoor, England at the stylish weekend retreat of the affluent Derek and Janet Taylor, where both adultery and murder are in the air. But we soon learn all is never as it seems in this electrifying evening of trickery and misdirection. Who is the hunter and who the hunted…and who is Accomplice’s title character? “The best fooler since Sleuth and twice as clever!” said the L.A. Times. “The comedy thriller of all comedy thrillers!” proclaimed LA Theatre & Entertainment Review.

See Accomplice at the Beardsley Theater! November 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, 29 December 3, 4, 5,6 2015

This weekend “Peter Pan” opens at Muskegon Civic Theatre. Here is the blurb from the website:

“Join Peter Pan, Wendy, Michael, and John in the high-flying timeless Broadway musical that will whisk you away to a place where dreams are born and no one ever grows up!
Peter and his mischievous fairy sidekick Tinkerbell visit the nursery of the Darling children late one night and with a sprinkle of pixie dust begin a magical journey across the stars that none of them will ever forget. In the adventure of a lifetime the travelers come face to face with a ticking crocodile, a fierce Indian tribe, a band of bungling pirates, and of course the villainous Captain Hook. Featuring the iconic songs “I’m Flying,” “I’ve Gotta Crow,” “I Won’t Grow Up,” and “Never Never Land,” and a rousing book full of magic, warmth, and adventure, PETER PAN is the perfect show for the child in all of us who dreamed of soaring high and never growing up”

Fatty Lumpkins Sandwich Shack is a locally owned and operated restaurant in Muskegon.  They are opened daily for lunch and offer a great selection of salads and sandwiches. The food is really fresh and reasonably priced!  I love the decor of course; from the whimsical exterior to the vibrant walls inside. The atmosphere is really relaxed and it’s a great place to stop on your lunch hour!
