PAGE 18 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N Revived 'Diamond Studs still loud, lively, fun By MICHEL1NE KEATING Clllzen Drama Crilic The Arizona Civic Theatre has re-created its saloon musi- . cal, "Diamond Studs," that ; had such popular success over .at Old Tucson last summer, . a n d set it down in the Community Center Little Theatre. ; It takes to its new setting as happily as to the old one. And you wouldn't believe what goes on in the sedate Little Theatre, with saloon girls A Keating Review hawking drinks and popcorn throughout the auditorium during the show, and chorus girls can-canning up and down the aisles. Reagan Cook has provided another of his wonderfully effective sets. And "Doc" Gordon not only handles the piano with his usual facility, he has the Summer Dog musical group amplified so it sounds like rock heaven, only this rock nestles comfortably in blue grass. As before, Sandy Rosenthal has directed the boisterous goings-on and Fran Cohen has the dancing girls kicking the high fantastic with abandon. Some of last summer's cast is back again. "Big" Jim Griffith is doubling in brass as Mother James and outlaw Cole Younger except on Tuesday nights. At the preview 1 a t t e n d e d Tuesday, Sandy Staples filled in for Big Jim and gave a different interpretation, but it was fun. Nancy Booth, the eye-appealing Belle Starr of the summer show, is repeating this role and also appearing as Zee James and playing both parts with ingratiating come- on. She is good. There is a new Jesse James. This time around the big, bad bank robber is Steve Eastin and he, too, makes the most of his role. "Diamond Studs," with its original music, book and lyrics by Bland Simpson, Jim Wann and John Haber, tells the story of the life of the notorious outlaw Jesse James. It is mostly loud and lively, foot-stomping bluegrass held together with occasional lines of dialogue and illustrated with slides of real life pictures of the bank robber thrown onto set panels. "Diamond Studs" replaces the musical "Something's Afoot," ACT's original scheduling for this time slot. For holders of season tickets, the "Something's Afoot" seats do not have to be exchanged for "Diamond Studs," and there are plenty of single seats still available for the run which continues through Feb. 29. It's a dilly. If you haven't seen "Diamond Studs," don't miss it. If you have seen it, go see it again -- that's what I'm going to do. r o.50%0ffon Acrylic warnvups Tennis dresses Swimsuits accessories 8789 E.Broadway Keep your budeet inthe BLACK!
