Finally, finally, finally—after more than a month off—I was able to get back out there to review a show! I was saddened to hear the news that American Heartland Theatre is closing down after this season ends. I know it has consistently put out great shows and employed a lot of actors, musicians, and theatre talents through its tenure at Crown Center, so this is just a shame. I don’t know all the details behind the scenes, but pretty much everyone I have talked to is upset, as well as feedback I’ve read online various places about it. Anyway, in the meantime, “the show must go on” as they say, so last weekend I saw AHT’s current show Life Could Be a Dream. Essentially a vehicle to relive some great hits of the 1960s and enjoy a little escapism to a simpler era, Life Could Be a Dream is a fun, funny, delightfully campy musical. The performers were awesome—best part of the show. Check out my full review on KCMetropolis.org: Dreamy Life is neat-o
