2014 – The Year in Review

The Music Box Theater says hello to 2015 with a look back at 2014. The musical theater troupe highlights some of their favorite moments of the past year in 2014 — The Year in Review. Founding member Rebekah Dahl sings “Piece of My Heart,” made famous by Janis Joplin. Fellow founding member Brad Scarborough performs “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You,” a sig-nature tune for Frankie Valli. Kristina -Sullivan reprises her performance of “Summertime” from Porgy and Bess. The group finale is “A Little Help From My Friends.” “That’s from the Beatles, but Luke [Wrobel] will be doing it as Joe Cocker,” Scarborough tells us.

Several moments from last season stand out for Scarborough, including a group performance of “Light My Fire.” “We all sang [it] as different personalities. I sang it as Jim Morrison. Luke sang it as Neil Diamond. Kristina came out as Celine Dion. Cay Taylor came out as Axel Rose and Rebecca came out as Elaine Stritch. Some nights the crowd was right there with us; some nights people were sitting there thinking, ‘What are we watching?’ That was fun.”
