I hope you have that song in your head--the one that goes "Celebration Time, Come On!" cause we have some celebrating to do. The Utah Shakespearean Festival has recently announced that Brian Vaughn will be returning to the festival this year to play the lead in Cyrano de Bergerac and Launce in The Two Gentlemen of Verona.
Now some of you may be looking at this photo of Brian and thinking that he's not bad looking but he's not all that. Well my friends you are wrong and I challenge you to attend one of his performances and not come away thinking "he's great" followed by a sigh. But the celebration need not end here because there is more. The festival has also announced that David Ivers will be returning to the festival to direct Brian in Cyrano de Bergerac. Could it get any better? Well yes I suppose also putting David on stage for at least one production in addition to his directing duties would be better; and Michael Sharon returning and the festival somehow landing Rupert Penry-Jones as well would be better. But I am happy and content and getting ready to buy my tickets.
