Have you read it?

March 13, 2008 - Diane Speer
Maybe when I was a kid I needed to get out of the house more. I'm one of those people who can honestly say that as a young teen I read and loved Margaret Mitchell's massively long novel, "Gone With the Wind." Actually, I read it not once, but twice. I also loved the movie based upon the book - all of which has piqued my interest in seeing Thunder Bay Theatre's new show that opens tonight.

"Moonlight and Magnolias" is a comedy play about actual events that went on behind-the-scenes during the filming of the 1939 classic movie, "Gone With the Wind." The four core company actors appearing in the production are among the probably large group of people who haven't previously spent a good chunk of their time pouring over the pages of Mitchell's indelible Scarlett O'Hara/Rhett Butler saga. But this TBT foursome, who has done a fair amount of research in preparation for their roles, assured me that theater goers will like "Moonlight and Magnolias" even if they haven't ever read the original source book or seen the original movie.

I'm not seeing TBT's show until Sunday afternoon, but as usual, I'll let you know afterward what I think via my theater review. "Moonlight and Magnolias" runs March 13-29.
