‘Hair’ to Shine at Sunset Playhouse
Also: Lunt-Fontanne Fellowship’s concluding performance
Milwaukee stage veteran
Ray Jivoff is set to direct the Sunset production. As associate artistic director
and educational director for the Skylight Opera Theatre, Jivoff’s extensive
experience in performing and directing makes him well suited to handle the
chaos inherent to a production of Hair.
It should be fun to see
this much-talked-about productionreflected
onstage just outside Milwaukee County. The Sunset Playhouse’s production of Hair runs July 16-Aug. 8 in Elm Grove.

West of Elm Grove, an
out-of-the-way stage will play host to a rare performance by some of the best
actors in the nation. Genesee Depot is home to the estate of the late, great
theater couple Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne. A shrine to an earlier age of
theater, the home has become the historic landmark Ten Chimneys. For the second year in a row, Ten Chimneys has hosted
a summer fellowship program in honor of Lunt and Fontanne. Over the past week,
some of the most respected actors from all over the United States have studied
together at Ten Chimneys. On Saturday, July 17, the 2010 Lunt-Fontanne
Fellowship Program presents its concluding presentation. The product of a
weeklong program of study under Barry Edelstein, the performance is a unique
opportunity to see some of the country’s best actors perform together onstage.
Included in this class of acclaimed actors is Milwaukee Rep Resident actress
The Lunt-Fontanne Fellowship Program’s 2010 concluding presentation starts at 8 p.m. July 17. For more information, visit www.tenchimneys.org.
