On new episode of ‘The Munro Review on CMAC,’ a ‘Sweeney Todd’ duet. Plus: a new executive director for Arte Américas.
The latest episode of “The Munro Review on CMAC” is here, and it includes a lively interview with Joseph Ham and Phae Elfont, stars of the Visalia Players production of “Sweeney Todd.” (The show is in its final weekend, so it’s a perfect time to watch.)
You already met Elfont, who plays Mrs. Lovett, in an amusing Q&A interview a few weeks ago. And veteran theatergoers are familiar with Ham, who veers from his clean-cut image (I barely recognized him with his beard) as the title character. The pair sing a beautiful rendition of “My Friends” on the CMAC show.
Also on the episode: I have an interesting chat with Arianna Paz Chávez, the new executive director of Arte Américas. Big changes are in store for the cultural center thanks to a big grant from the state. We also talk about Arte’s exciting new exhibition, “Jose Montoya’s Resonant Valley.”
Here’s the episode:
