…Just Sing a Song


This Sunday I’m wishing happy trails to a St. Louis institution — The Muny.

Today marks the end of a season that was a century in the making. For generations of St. Louisan’s summer has meant nights spent under the stars watching pure, theatrical, musical magic on The Muny stage.

Sometimes it rains. Often it’s hotter and muggier than you could imagine. Believe it or not, that’s part of its charm.

It’s a tradition that has created the kind of community that I think you can appreciate no matter where you’re from.

I’ll admit, I could gush about The Muny for days, but I know it’s Sunday and you have things to do (or not do). Or as they say in the theater — the show must go on. So, I’ll wrap this up.

To those who make the Muny what it is, thanks for the magic and memories. We can’t wait to see what comes next.

…and because it is #SundayFunday, here are some highlights from the past few seasons.

    I have go to St. Louis many times; but don’t know if I ever saw a production at The Muny.

    However; seen a musical in St. Louis at the Fox Theatre

    The Muny is an underappreciated treasure…

      I have been to some beautiful theatre venues. The Fox Theatre in St. Louis is gorgeous- when I saw Annie with my grandma, we were Front Row.

      The Peace Center in Greenville is beautiful- I got to experience Phantom of the Opera from the orchestra and Les Misérables from the fourth level up so I really got to appreciate the fully beauty of that venue. Wonderful sound system.

      I have seen Les Misérables at the Queen’s Theatre in London- another beautiful venue.

      Maybe sometimes I could actually see a musical at the MUNY- I am a musical theatre fanatic. Just don’t remember if I went to see a show there or not

        It’s definitely worth a visit. Even if you’ve been there before. 😉

          I have visited Forest Park before, the same place the MUNY is. My grandma lived right near that park.

          The main venues I get to watch musicals from are the Charlotte venues. After all, Charlotte is my hometown. So I do not get to see musicals away from Charlotte very often; but I do love when I get the chance to see musicals in new venues.
