kcmetropolis march 14 issue


This was kind of an insane issue for me… four reviews/articles is unusual. But I couldn’t resist these shows, and it was a pleasure to interview Steven Eubank, artistic director of Egads! Theatre Company. Egads! is currently putting on the quirky doo-wop musical Zombie Prom. Jake Shimabukuro showed off amazing ukulele skills in his arrangements of pop tunes for the four-string instrument. And it was a real thrill to see the venerable Irish band the Chieftains, featuring founding member Paddy Maloney, on its fiftieth anniversary tour.
