The weather really has changed. Mornings in the 50 degree range, days in the 70′s, perfect to get out and see what Little Rock has to offer. The Arkansas Repertory Theater has just undergone a wonderful renovation and had it’s gala premier of Ring Of Fire. This play offers wonderful music and stories of Johnny Cash, an Arkansas original. Jason Edwards performed this role on Broadway in New York under the direction of John Carter Cash. He reprises the role at the Rep from September 15 through October9. Little Rock has been waiting patiently for the new season to get under way, and what a great play to start the season.
The Weekend Theater is opening THE GUYS, September 15-24th. This is a tribute to the firefights and other heroes who lost their lives on 9/11 in New York City. Located in the heart of Little Rock, this theater does a wonderful job of casting and delivery.
Murry’s Dinner Theater is also opening a new show this week, PURLIE, based on the award winning play by Ossie Davis. The cast of Murry’s makes every play special and the audience feels intimately connected to what is going on just feet away. A visit to Murry’s always leaves me with a smile and delightful memories.
Little Rock is full of live music, wonderful restaurants, and special events that are the magic in any visit to a city. Just blocks away from the Rep, the Weekend Theater, and minutes away from Murry’s, Robinwood Bed and Breakfast welcomes you to Little Rock.
