How about wrapping up your theater-going holiday season by attending one of only three remaining performances of Arizona Onstage Productions' musical "The Story of My Life," (music and lyrics by Neil Bartram, book by Brian Hill) playing Friday, Saturday (7:30pm) and Sunday (2:30pm) at the Cabaret Space, Temple of Music and Art?
Kathy Allen of The Arizona Daily Star said in her review, "Come on, how can you not love it?" She went on . . . "This production with Jeremy Vega and Tyler Wright as lifelong friends who visit the past via songs was sweet and tender." And "Vega and Wright have beautiful voices, and they both firmly planted their feet in the shoes of the characters." In The Tucson Weekly Sherilyn Forrester praised the singers and the musicians . . . "There are some wonderfully soaring voices accompanied by three first-rate musicians under the direction of Bill Patterson." Chuck Graham liked the themes of friendship and love. "Fans of Facebook are perpetually plastered with homilies about the value of lifelong friendships. Arizona Onstage Productions takes the message far deeper in its hauntingly poignant production "The Story of My Life," a two-person musical performed without any mimes or tap dancers on a one-set stage using street clothes for costumes. Kevin Johnson the director, and Bill Patterson the music director, have these two singers creating unforgettable emotional experiences on stage. Adding the orchestral framework are Julie Wypych, reeds, Rex Colin Mitchell, cello, and Patterson, piano."
