Looking for something new to do? Where’s Amy recommends checking out The Cat, Carmel’s newest hot spot for live theatre and entertainment. I attended opening night’s “Side by Side by Sondheim” directed by Ellen Kingston and produced by Carmel Theatre Company’s John and June Clair. What a treat it was to listen to the songs of Stephen Sondheim narrated by Kingston and performed by the five talented cast members Thom Brown, Ellen Kingston, Carolyn Lynch, Gail Payne and Matthew Vire. I was captivated by the creative lyrics, heart and sole of every song and was thrilled to hear some songs I had never heard. Kingston and company make you feel at home as if you are sitting side by side Sondheim experiencing one of the greatest composers of all time. Bravo to the cast and crew for an outstanding performance. Be sure to check out The Cat, where you can enjoy a sip of wine and see local artwork on display – a new twist in live theatre right in your own back yard. For more, visit thecattheatre.com.
