Book by Greg MacKellan & Mark D. Kaufmann  *  Directed by Mark D. Kaufmann Music & Lyrics by Harold Arlen, Richard Whiting, Yip Harburg, Ralph Rainger, Johnny Mercer, Harry Warren, Cole Porter & Others Runs April 2nd thru April 20th - 3 weeks! I have a principal role with 42nd Street Moon's musical production "Painting the Clouds with Sunshine" -- a brand new, world premiere musical with some beloved songs from the 1930s! The Great Depression as viewed through the prism of the Talking Pictures Musicals that swept the clouds away in the darkest times.  The score will include songs from the 1930s movie musicals such as: Painting the Clouds With Sunshine, Good Morning Glory, I Wished On The Moon, Sing You Sinners, Marahuana, Jeepers Creepers, You Oughta Be in Pictures, and Dusty Shoes. I play Willa, a widow who was a former Vaudevile performer, and now runs a diner on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles in 1935. My waitress and her friend want to be in the movies, my regulars are in newspaper and show business, and all our paths cross into a delightful story about hopes, dreams, romance, happiness, money, and what we do to have all that during the Great Depression (sort of like today, huh?) Two characters serve as our "movie star muses" as we see them on the screen - and off! Book by Greg MacKellan & Mark D.

We contribute to its evolution and continuing vitality by presenting intimately produced performances of classic and rarely performed musical works.
