Burien Little Theatre Borrows Baby Grand Piano From BTB Reader For “Christmas With The Crawfords”
A few months ago, The B-Town Blog posted a request from the Burien Little Theatre for a baby grand piano to be used on stage for “Christmas with the Crawfords,” the campy new musical comedy that opens this Friday, Nov. 27th.
BLT had four people kindly offer their baby grand, and thanks to BTB Reader Kathy Reed, on Monday, Nov. 23rd, her piano was delivered. BLT of course paid for professionals to move the piano in and back out, and BLT will have the piano tuned now that it is in the theater space and again when the piano gives up the stage and returns home.
“This is the first time in BLT’s 29 seasons that a baby grand has graced the stage,” said Eric Dickman, Artistic Director. “We are all very excited.”
Ann Sager, the music director for “Christmas with the Crawfords,” who will play the piano during the run of the show says, “Since the first day of rehearsal I have been looking forward to sitting down at the baby grand and playing my heart out for the audience.”
Managing Director Maggie Larrick adds: “This is Joan Crawford’s house on Christmas eve 1944. Â Joan would not have a lowly upright. Â The script called for a baby grand, and thanks to our supporters we have a baby grand on stage.”
“Christmas with the Crawfords” opens this Friday, Nov. 27th, and runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 2 pm.
