Today, Theatre Under the Stars announced its 2011-2012 season, and what a time warp. The selections are five musical theater warhorses plus one new movie-to-stage adaptation.
TUTS big and boring new season features: Guys & Dolls, Annie, White Christmas, La Cage Aux Folles and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, plus Bring It On: The Musical.
While it's definitely a departure from the current season's film-to-stage, jukebox musical fare, it's probably the most milquetoast selection we've seen in years. It reads like the permanent repertory in Branson, Missouri.
And what is it with TUTS and Dolly Parton-affiliated musicals?
