Those heading there this month have the opportunity to see the revival of Stephen Sondheim's "A Little Night Music," starring two of the theater's most revered performers, Elaine Stritch and Bernadette Peters, as mother and daughter. And four times a week, playing the youngest member of that clan, is Lee's Summit native Katherine McNamara.</p> Thu, 02 Dec 2010 16:37:00 +0000 Steve Walker 2023 at http://kcur.org Lee's Summit Teen Reflects on Broadway Debut Moises Kaufman Tackles "Into the Woods" At The Rep http://kcur.org/post/moises-kaufman-tackles-woods-rep <p class="legacy-audio-url"> <div class="audio-container"> <div id="jp-interface-53cec5594bd53-" class="jp-interface"> <div id="post-audio-53cec5594bd53-" class="jp-player" jp-instance="53cec5594bd53-"></div> <div class="jp-controls column"> <div class="jp-progress"> <div class="jp-seek-bar"> <div class="jp-play-bar"></div> </div> </div><!-- end jp-progress --> </div><!-- end jp-controls --> <div class="playpause column"> <a href="http://stream.publicbroadcasting.net/production/mp3/national/local-national-859546.mp3" class="jp-play">Listen</a> <a class="jp-pause"></a> </div><!-- playpause --> <div class="jp-time-holder column"> <div class="jp-custom-current-time"></div> <div class="jp-custom-duration"></div> </div><!-- jp-time-holder --> <div id="slider"></div> </div><!-- .jp-interface --> </div><!-- container --> </p> <p>Kansas City, MO – When Eric Rosen, the artistic director of Kansas City Repertory Theatre, asked noted playwright and director Moises Kaufman to pick a musical he'd like to direct here, at the top of the list was Stephen Sondheim's "Into the Woods."</p> Fri, 11 Sep 2009 19:58:00 +0000 Steve Walker 1571 at http://kcur.org Moises Kaufman Tackles "Into the Woods" At The Rep An Interview With Tony Award Nominee Moises Kaufman http://kcur.org/post/interview-tony-award-nominee-moises-kaufman <p class="legacy-audio-url"> <div class="audio-container"> <div id="jp-interface-53cec559488d5-" class="jp-interface"> <div id="post-audio-53cec559488d5-" class="jp-player" jp-instance="53cec559488d5-"></div> <div class="jp-controls column"> <div class="jp-progress"> <div class="jp-seek-bar"> <div class="jp-play-bar"></div> </div> </div><!-- end jp-progress --> </div><!-- end jp-controls --> <div class="playpause column"> <a href="http://stream.publicbroadcasting.net/production/mp3/national/local-national-859807.mp3" class="jp-play">Listen</a> <a class="jp-pause"></a> </div><!-- playpause --> <div class="jp-time-holder column"> <div class="jp-custom-current-time"></div> <div class="jp-custom-duration"></div> </div><!-- jp-time-holder --> <div id="slider"></div> </div><!-- .jp-interface --> </div><!-- container --> </p> <p>Kansas City, Mo. – From a glance at the cast of characters who populate the Stephen Sondheim musical "Into the Woods" - among them, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and Jack in the Beanstalk - one could assume that the show is a romp for audiences of all ages.
