Two of my favorite people in LA are Dana Weddle and Michael Dalke. They are funny, truthful, fearless, and can sing the hogs out of the hills! (Is that a thing?) They raised over $4,000 on Kickstarter (see below) to make their dream of performing the musical The Last Five Years come true! They brought in Kirk Mason and I to give notes close to opening and it felt wonderful to get to help direct the show! They are truly gifted. I got to see every performance since I also ran their lights and most nights I could barely see the
light board through my tears. They got a glowing review from the LA Music Blog and sold out almost every show! It was intimate performance with a cast of two magical people, playing a husband a wife recalling their relationship over the past five years, the husband starting from the beginning of the relationship and working to the present, the wife starting in the present and working to the start. They only sing one song together- their wedding song. Written by the glorious Jason Robert Brown, it was at the Cupcake Theater on Hollywood Blvd. at 8pm on Fridays and Saturdays from January 24th- February 1st. Hear their sweet songs in the video below:
