Ariana makes her Madison Lyric Stage debut!

Madison Lyric Stage is putting on an epic production of Stephen Schwartz' Pippin and it is not to be missed! I will be playing Fastrada, the crafty and cunning queen and cannot what show you what we have in store. I had the pleasure of attending the Madison Lyric Stage season opener, a double-bill, and reviewed the works for There, I describe their epic new performance space:

The stage is set in Madison Lyric Stage's brand new tent just behind the Deacon John Grave house. When I first heard that we'd be attending a performance in an outdoor tent on a rainy day, I expected disaster and got my galoshes ready. I arrived and was more than pleasantly surprised to discover that Madison Lyric Stage has thought of everything and made a truly impressive and innovative space. The hard-sided tent includes flooring, quality padded chairs, a raised stage, a professional-quality lighting and sound system, a projector with screen for surtitles, a bar, and seats 75 guests. Listening to the music and hearing the light rain drops on the top of the tent the performances that much more profound, somehow. It was such a unique, high-quality experience that I look forward to attending more of their outdoor productions.
