I don't normally announce good news with a sad story but when I saw the George Burns show Say Goodnight Gracie on the Halloran Centre's new stage series it reminded me of the time Frank Gorshin told me, with forced enthusiasm, "I might be getting Burnsed out." The original Riddler was as hyperactive as ever when we spoke, but he sounded tired. He'd been sick for a long time and I had a feeling that crack was no joke. It was Gorshin's last interview and Say Goodnight Gracie at the Orpheum was his last performance.

Gorshin was a special kind of mimic and a hard act to follow in any case. Hopefully Memphis will be a better, happier ending gig for Wizards of Waverley Place actor Alan Safier.


M*A*S*H* fans and Tuesdays With Morrie fans can get both in one place when Corporal Maxwell Q. Klinger (AKA Gong Show panelist Jamie Farr) brings his adaptation of Tuesdays With Morrie to town.

The series closes with the adult fairytale musical Disenchanted, which seems like the perfect show after a couple of blocks workout on the party-bike. Amiright?


At $90 for a season pass, the price is right for this new series. Fun gift for friends who like vintage comedians and girls night out.

For more details, here you go.

DISENCHANTED! The Hilarious Hit Musical
March 16 – 17, 2018
Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs ‘em?! Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in the hilarious hit musical that’s anything but Grimm. Forget the princesses you think you know – the original storybook heroines have come back to life to set the record straight. These royal renegades tossed off their tiaras to bring their hilariously subversive, not-for-the-kiddies musical to you – and what you thought about princesses will never be the same.
