Here’s the 2011-12 Broadway in Fresno lineup:
- Blue Man Group: Sept. 26-28
- My Fair Lady: Jan. 11-12
- Young Frankenstein: Feb. 14-15
- Grease: March 14-15
Um, sorry. I was so bored I feel asleep at my keyboard for a moment. Let’s see … “Blue Man Group,” founded in 1987, is as old as the red hills of Georgia. “My Fair Lady” and “Grease” … let’s just all ride our dinosaurs down to the Saroyan to partake.
“Young Frankenstein” is the “hot” title of the bunch, if you could call it that. The Mel Brooks musical opened on Broadway in 2007 to mixed reviews and closed a little over a year later.
There’s a big, glaring gap on the calendar between September and January. So I’m crossing my fingers and hoping a bigger-profile fifth title is announced later.
