OPENING NIGHT

Thank You, Minerva opened on Friday night, July 12, 2013, to thunderous applause and a long standing ovation from happy theatergoers and reviewers. Every aspect of the show came through to give our audience a special night of theater. The parts included the feelings of love for America, the blending of mythological gods and muses with real lyricists and songwriters, the acting and singing skills of our cast, the set design, the costumes, the crew and booth work and the skills of director Alissa-Nicole Koblentz, accompanist Bonnie Janofsky and production manager Patrick Rogers. There is an old adage that sometimes the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. I felt the truth of that old adage last night and I believe that everyone there felt the same thing.

The team of Thank You, Minerva urges you to share the magic of this inspiring musical that pays tribute to the lyricists and songwriters that helped America achieve its best values.

Imagine Jupiter, Juno and Minerva, the chief Roman deities, helping America evolve into a nation of freedom, strength and happiness. From time to time, they utilize Minerva’s power as a muse to visit our honored lyricists and songwriters and inspire works about what makes America special.

Minerva’s journeys take us through many American holidays from Martin Luther King Day to Christmas and end with her visit to inspire Katharine Lee Bates to write the poem that became the lyrics to “America the Beautiful.” The songs that Minerva inspired reflect the best modern American ideals – progress through peaceful means; equal rights under the law; the right to love who one chooses to love; appreciation for our immigrants, elders, workers and veterans; freedom of religion; being a land of diversity and opportunity.

Each scene features Minerva’s visit with an honored lyricist or songwriter and the live performance of his or her signature song by our amazing cast.

I Remember Lou and the Tony Award for best musical:

In today’s L.A. Times, theater critic Charles McNulty expresses his joy that “Once” won the Tony Award for best musical. Some excerpts are:
“Once,” the little musical spun from an Irish art house film, bested “Newsies,” the Disney Theatrical productions front-runner, for the Tony Award for best musical. If this season has taught us anything, it’s that theatrical creativity can’t be suppressed by corporate forces.
The show validates something essential to a healthy artistic future on Broadway: the freedom to follow an unorthodox path.
In a year that showed that bigger isn’t always better, it is reassuring to see a show with the courage to dream small walk away with the evening’s biggest prize.

So far, reviewers of I Remember Lou are enjoying many of the same characteristics as “Once.” As writer and producer, I hope that you get the opportunity to share the originality and wonderful performance by the I Remember Lou cast.
