‘Kiss Me-Kate’ has familiar cast

The music of Cole Porter is a little bit too old and dated for this Bogger, yet Christopher Sanders* (Fred Graham & Petruchio) brought appreciation for the evening with his sultry baritone voice.  If you’re a regular attender of the Alhambra Theatre & Dining, you may remember him from famed shows such as: “Man of La Mancha,” “South Pacific,” & “Annie Get Your Gun.”  You might also have purchased one of his CD’s from a prior show.

Another actor who brought the musical Kiss Me, Kate to life was Darryl Reuben Hall* (Paul) who brought his high kicks, unmistakable singing (“Too Darn HOT”) and dancing flare to the stage.  You may also recall recently seeing Darryl in “Five Guys Named Moe,” & “The WIZ.”  

Two actors who added comedy to the performance were the First and Second Gangsters, Joshua McKinney and Joey Swift.  These guys were hilarious.

About My Menu Choices:
First Course Chilled cucumber bisque with shrimp & dill; Caprese salad with diced tomatoes, mini mozzarella balls, pesto, balsamic glaze.  Both ar very delicious and very appetizing.
Second Course: Southern Style Pepper Steak with rice, gravy, and vegetables. The steak was tender and only needed a little addition of condiments.  House made rolls with slightly salted butter is always a favorite.
Third Course: Key Lime Pie.

We will be looking forward to the fall showing ofDo Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up?  Order your tickets today and we’ll see you on Gala Night .
