Sometimes we suffer from EMF (Extreme Musical Fatigue). South Pacific, for example, clocks in at three hours. CATS, at two hours and 30 minutes is approximately two hours and 29 minutes too long.
So we’re grateful when we get to see something that’s highly entertaining without rendering our butts too numb for post-show twerking.
That’s why we’re excited to see the local production of Alexander’s House, a musical commissioned by the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington DC and now being performed by the Chamber Chorus of The Turtle Creek Chorale.
The hilarious, heartbreaking and heartwarming show focuses on the friends, estranged son and partner of Alexander, a gay man who passes away unexpectedly. Worlds collide when they all converge on his summer home to deal with the aftermath.
With only two performances, this is truly a must-see production from the always-exquisite talent of the TCC. And because it’s a one-act musical, we promise you’ll be able to feel your butt when you leave.
And if you’re lucky, someone else will, too.
Presented by the Chamber Chorus of The Turtle Creek Chorale
