In the Wings: Enter Love: A Musical for Our Times. Meet Barry Kemble.
Barry Kemble plays Harold, Joe Bob, Tommy and Ted in Enter Love: A Musical for Our Times, an original musical with music and lyrics by Lynn Lupold and book by Don Seybold. It will make its world premiere at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette.
Barry said Harold is his main character in the show.
"Harold is like everyone's grandpa," he said. "He's senile and somewhat deaf and dresses kooky but he doesn't care. He's in a relationship with his wife because he still loves her. The audience can tell, but it's in an odd sort of way."
Barry said that being involved with an original musical that never has been produced before is exciting.
"We have a talented group," he said. "Coming into rehearsals, it's about being prepared more than anything."
Enter Love: A Musical for Our Times opens Friday, August 13 and runs through Saturday, August 21 at the historic Monon Depot Theatre at the corner of 5th Street and North Street in downtown Lafayette. Friday and Saturday evening performances begin at 7:30 p.m.; Sunday afternoon performances begin at 2:30 p.m.
