For classic broadway performers, there’s no business like show business. Same goes for broadway lovers.
Even though the business is being devastated by lockdowns, local theaters like the Musical Theater Heritage are intent on keeping the tradition alive and well.
“People love seeing musicals … we do the greatest musicals of all time,” said Tim Scott, artistic director of the Musical Theater Heritage, who had to pare down a Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. “If we’re going to do big musicals in a small space you’ve got to be very creative, and innovative and nimble.”
So they drew on their bag of theater magic. Surely their performances can deliver the same wow factor even with a smaller audience. The result?
That’s what you get to enjoy in this edition of “KC Performs,” which features Robert McNichols singing “This Nearly Was Mine” from Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “South Pacific.”
