Honky Tonk Angels
November 9-25 2017
Poorly behaving males — those who come home a’drinkin’, who’ve been a’messin’ where they shouldn’t have been a’messin’, those inclined to bring their barroom habits home to mama — are the uber-text of much of the great country music recorded by such woman as Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette and that angel on this green earth, Dolly Parton.
Songs of defiance thus form much of the content of Honky Tonk Angels, the toe-tapping, laugh a minute country music celebration of women and their power to survive, dream and downright overcome!
First Impressions Theatre’s production of Honky Tonk Angels will be a welcome chance to hear this repertory, up close and real personal!
This production, directed with heart by Claude Giroux and Alishia Suitor, with outstanding musical direction by Gordon Roberts, is cast exceptionally well. These three “ladies of country” create a welcoming embrace for everyone without compromising the defiance and self-actualization heard in the lyrics of these songs.
It’s an intimate three-person, 31 song, musical celebration of the country-western genre, more than enough to keep audience members clapping and singing along all through the night.
