Other shows in WDI’s exciting 2008-2009 season include; Deathtrap by Ira Levin, A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams, and the season finale, City of Angels*, with music by Cy Coleman, lyrics by David Zippel, and book by Larry Gelbart.
*Note: I've been in City of Angels and it is an amazing film noir musical and not to be missed when done well. Come to think of it, the only play in Wheaton Drama's season I've not been in is Frog and Toad and if it matches up to the likes of the others, it should be a no-miss for any potential theater goers. Deathtrap is a spine-tingling murder thriller that is the definitive word on the murder thriller, while A Streetcar Named Desire remains Tennessee Williams greatest work on man's heated passions, anger, regret and madness all rolled up in the faded hopes and dreams of New Orleans misty past where it might only take a bit or red paper to create a bit of magic, and an old record to create the romance of the past.
So while I am not familiar with the group, per say, I think it's worth a look-see. Their play reading and selection committee has certainly done an admirable job in picking shows that are entertaining and worth the trek. That is usually the sign of a group worth patronizing. If you do go, let me know what you thought, in case I don't get to go and review it myself.
