Play time this weekend

Posted on Thu, Sep 16, 2010 at 12:39 PM

Date night? Your significant other might go for a serious musical in CdA or a rom-com in Spokane.

Andrew Lloyd Webber visits Coeur d'Alene! He's holed up in his suite at the Resort, though. Fortunately, Abbey Crawford and Carolyn Jess (director and musical director) will be available to direct the cast of Evita through their harmonizing paces. If you have to be seductive and twist arms in order to get to the top — so you can aid the masses of poor people — but then you find out, once you're at the top, that you've distanced yourself from all the people who once loved you, what do you do? You sing, "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina." Evita croons and tangos at Lake City Playhouse, 1320 E. Garden Ave. in CdA, with opening night on Friday at 7:30 pm; also on Saturday at 7:30 pm and on Sunday at 2 pm. Call (208) 667-1323. Look for our review next week.

Three sisters, two brothers, several in-laws and step-parents ... and a wedding. A blended family tries to welcome the new son- (or brother-)in-law. It's one big emotional mess — but Reed McColm's Together Again for the Next Time is also very funny at times. Somewhere around the brother-sister teasing, or the ridicule of the Spokane airport, or the removal of stains from tuxedo pants with Wite-Out, you realize that the 11 people onstage have problems a lot like yours. Only even more laughable. At Interplayers, Friday-Saturday at 7:30 pm, along with a 2 pm matinee on Saturday. Tickets: $15-$21; $10, students. Review here.
