I’m so bleary-eyed from going to performances that I’ve almost lost track myself of all the theater going on this weekend. In Friday’s issue of 7 I have two condensed reviews, so here for easy access are the extended versions for “Dreamgirls” and “The Wizard of Oz.” Plus, here’s the extended review for “Rancho Tesoro” in Visalia (pictured), which I wrote about in Thursday’s paper.
Opening this weekend: “The Turn of the Screw” at the Broken Leg Stage. I have an interview in Friday’s 7 section with Brooke Aiello, who plays the governess in this creepy tale.
Three of the above are in their final days: “Wizard of Oz,” “Rancho Tesoro” and “Aristocats.”
Plus, I’ll be writing in a few minutes on the Beehive about a couple of cutting-edge one-act operas tonight that kick off the California Opera Association annual summer festival.
By the way, if you were one of the few who planned to attend the touring stage production of “Friends With Benefits,” which had been scheduled for tonight at the Warnors Theatre, better make other plans. That performance has been cancelled because of low ticket sales.
