Vintage Theatre: 9/26 – 11/2
      “I Do! I Do” is the two-person musical about marriage that takes us from the altar to the home for the aged in one short lovely evening. It’s the kind of marriage Sinatra sings about in his well-known oldie “Love and Marriage.” You know the one whose lyric rhymes with “Horse and Carriage” and used to lead into “Married with Children.”
     Suzanne Nepi portrays Agnes, the bride, with a lively girlish charm.
     Brian Walker-Smith plays Michael, the groom, with classy chutzpah.
     Lorraine Scott has directed the show with an affectionate gentle touch that makes the evening a complete joy.
     The show has a simplicity about it that is truly endearing.  It’s got a book and lyrics by Tom Jones and music by Harvey Schmidt. You may remember that these are the two men who brought you the longest running musical of all time: “The Fantasticks!”
     Nepi and Walker-Smith have a delightful chemistry onstage that makes all the songs about the various stages of life put a smile on your face that sticks like glue all night.
     The show has a lot of wonderful duets and a great solo for each of the actors. Numerous great singers have recorded the most popular song over the years: “My Cup Runneth Over”…With Love!
     The show holds a special place in my heart since it was one of the very first original Broadway cast recordings I bought…on vinyl!
     With music direction by Sheri Wright and very fine accompaniment by pianist Trent Hines the upbeat tunes promise to trump whatever problems you left at the door and brighten your spirits!
