Today we step out of the comfy confines of the Highway 61 Coffee House and head just up the street and around the corner to the historic Strand Theatre, which is part of the Adolph Rose building. It's located at 717 Clay Street, for those of you who are looking to check out the historic building or the play which is about to be staged inside. You can locate the entrance to the theatre very easily by making a mental note that (1) it's just east of Washington Street and (2) it's right behind the Mississippi Blues Trail marker for The Red Tops!
But I digress...
The family that is the Westside Theatre Foundation has been working on restoring the Strand for quite a while now and things are almost ready to go as we post this interview. When our hostess heard about the play and the re-opening of the Strand, she jumped at the chance to head over and interview the players in the upcoming presentation of the Broadway musical, "I Love You, You're Perfect. Now Change!"
Robyn Lea joined Cristina, Jennifer, John & Rusty on the stage at the theatre this past Tuesday and caught them at the perfect moment to have a wonderful conversation about the play, the building, the troupe, and lots more. When we taped the interview, the Westside crew were putting the finishing touches on the air conditioning unit and things were working to cool the building down on Wednesday afternoon. That was Wednesday... as I said.. we taped the interview on Tuesday and the stage area was only being cooled by a few fans, which were kind of over-powered by the numerous fans which you'll hear in the background of the video.
We've had the chance to sit in on some of the rehearsals and can say, with surety, that you'll be thoroughly entertained by this engaging performance. The play is all about relationships and the four actors that Robyn interviews are the entire cast of the play. They'll be portraying numerous characters in this musical and we encourage each and every one of you to get out and see the play, but not before you fix yourself a large cup-o-joe & enjoy Coffee with the Westside Theatre Foundation!
