A Taste of Broadway with a Pinch of Salt
by Bruce Powell
Be sure make reservations for the upcoming "A Taste of Broadway With a Pinch of Salt" event coming to the CYC Grand Ballroom on November 2. With the dedicated leadership of Jackie Taylor, and a talented cast of CYC members, this event is not to be missed. Jackie has assembled 30-some performances into a grand show drawing from the greatest numbers of Broadway, from "South Pacific" to "Oklahoma!"
Did you miss the last show? Two years ago, the Club presented some wonderful performances in "Cabaret Night". You can see video of that event online at http://www.cyc.org/video.html (and then click on the Cabaret Night selection). Those performances are a real treat, and if you missed that show, you can still enjoy the highlights online. This year's show is by leaps and bounds bigger and better!
You might wonder what it takes to pull off such an extravagant production. The cast of thousands (well...dozens, actually), have been rehearsing for several months. Twice a week, cast members refine their performances in three-plus-hour rehearsals into the late evening. The dedication of everyone involved is quite amazing.
Be sure to make your reservations early for this exceptional event.
