“Broadway” comes to Killington Vermont

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009

Last night, I had the pleasure of attending the premier of “The News in Revue” at the Killington Grand Hotel.  I found this 70-minute musical production to be very well done and extremely entertaining.  Billed as ‘Saturday Night Live’ meets ‘Sixty Minutes’, the cast cleverly satired a broad range of current news personalities and events.  Where else in Vermont could you find Hillary & Bill Clinton, Sarah Palin, Marian Robinson, John Edwards, Mark Sanford, Bobby Jindal, and the Swine Flu all in the same place??

The facility proved to be very comfortable and appropriate for the show.  The production will be playing at the Killington Grand Ovations Restaurant nightly except Mondays, September 25th through October 10th.  Tickets are available with a three-course prix-fixe dinner for $49.95 per person or “show only” for $30 per person.  I strongly recommend that you check it out.

Tickets can be reserved by phoning 800-621-6867, online at www.newsinrevue.com, or in person at the Front Desk at the Killington Grand.
