My Life at the Theater: GUYS ON ICE




I saw this at the Purple Rose Theater in Chelsea Michigan. I am guessing it was in 2001 because Jeff Daniels' notes on the first page talk about needing a silly play like this one after the recent events. Although God knows, there are always horrific recent events it seems.
Anyway, as hard as it is to believe, this is a musical about ice fishing in Wisconsin. Lots of tunes, lots of jokes. It was written by Fred Allen with James Kaplan as composer. It's a local favorite.
