McManus stretched out; variety show still coming

*McManus in Love* has sold so well at CenterStage that it will extend to a third weekend, with performances on Feb. 10-11.

As for the CenterStage Live! variety show directed by Kim Roberts, originally set to open Feb. 10: It will open Feb. 24 for Friday-Saturday performances through April 1 (no foolin'), with the theme of "Love." You can get in to see a preview on Friday, Feb. 17 only for just $10. The writing team is now reported to be composed of Reed McColm, Pat McManus, Tim Behrens, Janean Jorgensen, Maria Caprile, Leslie Grove and Superior Court Judge Michael Donohue.

Some math: If CenterStage sells out (as it is, or is close to doing, for its first four performances of "McManus") all of its 165 seats for dinner theater, and IF -- big if -- all 165 folks buy both dinner and show at $39 per, that's a gross of $6,435 per night.
