110 In The Shade
State of The Arts Productions made its Columbus debut with 110 in the Shade. Directed and Choreographed by Quentin Edwards, the Broadway musical adapted by composer Harvey Schmidt, lyricist Tom Jones and author N. Richard Nash from The Rainmaker, Nash’s play about a small-town romance between a con-man drifter and a spinster.
It focuses on Lizzie Curry (Nicole Fowles), a spinster living on a ranch in the American southwest, and her relationships with local sheriff File (David Lim), a cautious divorcé who fears being hurt again, and charismatic con man Bill Starbuck (William Haynes), posing as a rainmaker who promises the locals he can bring relief to the drought-stricken area.
