Three's a riot!

Summer theater usually has no shortage of comedies. I've seen a couple of great ones in the last week and another one, "Escanaba in da Moonlight," opens tonight at Circle Theatre. I mentioned "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" in an earlier post. It continues at Civic through Father's Day. Now, for the triple crown, I'd like to nominate a third show, "The Fox on the Fairway" at Augusta Barn Theatre. It's a pretty typical door-slamming farce with six characters running every which way. My review will be published tomorrow on Encore Michigan. The show runs for another week and will be followed by "Pal Joey" staring West Michigan's favorite soap queen, Kim Zimmer. Zimmer was in the audience of "The Fox on the Fairway" opening night and seemed to be having a great time. Barn producer Brendan Ragotzy announced Zimmer will be touring with "Wicked" on the West Coast starting in December.
