Bisbee's Obscure Productions Presents "My Blue Heaven"
Bisbee's Obscure Productions will open the romantic comedy of a "different color," "My Blue Heaven" by Jane Chambers, on Friday, March 21, 2008 at the Bisbee Woman's Club, 7 Ledge Avenue in Old Bisbee.
"My Blue Heaven" features the old song but is not based on the musical of the same name. It's the story of a young couple that has moved to the country trying to pursue their creative dreams and free themselves from the society that oppresses them. The dream runs into trouble, though, when they realize that the oppressive society also "provided them with central heating and a toilet that flushes" -- just one of the many twists that make this a good fit for a play produced in Bisbee. Comedy ensues as the couple looks for ways to find a windfall that will make their dreams come true while allowing them to be true to their ideals and to each other. The play does contain mature themes and language.
Rae E. Jones, the "obscure" part of Bisbee's Obscure Productions directs. The cast features talented BOP veterans Fiona Lillard and Christa Smith and the very funny and most welcome BOP newcomer Cobban Barnett. These actors have real chemistry and great comic timing among them, and Cobban's chicken sound effects alone are worth the price of admission.
"My Blue Heaven" will play Fridays and Saturdays, March 21, 22, 28 and 29 at 7:30 pm with a Sunday matinee at 3:00 pm on March 23. Tickets are $10 in advance at Atalanta's Music & Books, Bisbee Food Coop and Bisbee Visitors Center and by mail from BOP at P. O. Box 277, Bisbee, AZ 85603. They will be $12 at the door.
