Rhythm of the West
Imagine this: You're watching The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, and as Lee Marvin and the Duke cross paths, a doo-wop melody kicks in, they turn and begin a choreographed number. It all turns into a jovial scene in which Marvin's character is never a violent demon-spawn and Wayne's never has to pop a cap in his ass. A crazy, dramatic Western turns into a rollicking musical a la Stage West. OK, so maybe Stage West's Johnny Guitar doesn't star two silver screen giants, but it does turn an old genre into something fun...in a way that's a lot less Oklahoma! than you'd think (and that's a good thing).
Fridays, 8 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays, 3 p.m. Starts: Jan. 6. Continues through Jan. 15
