Get Ready (June 7 - July 22, 2007)

Get Ready

Written by Jaye T. Stewart and Joe Plummer
Music by Joe Plummer
Directed by Lou Bellamy
Musical direction by Sanford Moore
Choreographed by Austene Van

Once the smooth crooning kings of soul music, The Doves are now on the other side of the fence; more than a bit outdated, estranged from one another, and plagued by the cramps and impediments of old age. After years apart, they come together again when a producer suggests a reunion album and possible tour. They may be a bit rusty but they still have the magic, that wonderful combination of soulfulness and sweet sincerity that made the ladies swoon. Theirs is music to fall in love to. Reunited for a shot at a last gasp tour, they realize along with the old music comes the old conflicts too. Their dreams, egos and loyalties require a reckoning with the past. Told with humor and real tenderness Get Ready is the story of legendary musicians stepping once again into the light.

Listen to an introduction for Get Ready by cast member J.D. Steele!
