You are my sustaining and living fire.
I warm my hands at your smile;
My muscles are melted with your touch;
I drink in tonic heated by your laughter.
Fearsome creatures stay from me
Because of your brightness.
Friends come near to me
Because of your glow.
You are the heat of my passion.
The embers of my comfort.
You ignite in my loin
And simmer in my soul.

The cast is led by Leif Norby and Merideth Kaye Clark, both of whom are stand out singers. However, my two favorite pieces were by supporting actors. The first favorite was performed by two of the regular members of this phenomenal theater group, Doren Elias and Michael Mitchell. They sang Brush Up on Your Shakespeare, and it was terrifically funny. I've been singing that song for days. My next favorite (One can several favorites, you know.) was the song, Too Darn Hot, performed by Alexander Nathan. Mr. Nathan is from Georgia and is considering moving to Oregon. For our sake, I hope he does. He was simply fantastic in this number. He kept asking the audience if we wanted more, and of course we did!
So, I urge you to go see the play. It is presented at Clackamas Community College in Oregon City. Bring a friend with you and then go to dinner after! www.clackamasrep.org 503-594-6047 You'll read more about Clackamas Repetory Theater in another edition of The Causerie. skp
