Music by Dolly Parton in this hilarious, slightly risque musical based on the film that's being staged in a great production at Illinois Wesleyan this week. Jacob plays the teen son. We've seen the rehearsals and it's fun! Scott Susong is doing an amazing job directing. If you remember what it was like to be a working girl or guy in the late 70s (or wonder how things have changed), you'll particularly find this funny. Nov. 13-17 (Tues- Sat) at 8 pm and Nov. 18 (Sunday) at 2 pm. Tickets: $12 Tue - Thurs. $14 on weekend.
Here's an opening preview from the local theatre blog A Follow Spot.
Just so you know, it's rated PG-13. Jacob's role as teen son is a guy who gives his mom something (in a role originated by Lily Tomlin in the film version) that gets the story moving in an interesting direction, let's just say. Jacob has explained that he's "playing against type."
