The Blanche M. Touhill Performing Arts Center, a
brand new struggling venue for arts no one wants to see on the UMSL campus presents Over the Rainbow:
Honoring the 100th anniversary of composer Harold Arlen’s birth, this multi-media musical concert delves into Arlen’s life with behind-the-scenes clips from “The Wizard of Oz,” home movies and photos. Broadway stars Tom Wopat and Faith Prince join forces for an entertaining walk down memory lane.
What, no mention that he is best known to most of America as Luke Duke (that’s from the The Dukes of Hazzard, you damn kids) ?
I guess the trustees of Blanche M. Touhill are keeping their target audience separate from the taxpayers who funded the underused, underattended facility.
Kudos, too, for adding their own service charge to tickets. Classy.
