Last chance to see Lyric
Seasons of Love, Lyric Players’ third annual musical mishmash of popular love songs performed by students amuses and amazes despite a few bumps in the road.
Lyric Players allows students of all talent levels a shot at auditioning and performing in group songs, an invaluable experience to those wondering what would happen if they decided to sing outside of the shower.
This year, music education junior Jennifer Agbu plucked beloved tunes from the musical Rent, the movie Enchanted and the television series Scrubs for the themed show.
The audience may long for a real storyline instead of an excuse to belt out favorites, but it’s still rewarding to see UH students perform together.
Despite the slow moments when the show awkwardly bridges the gap between tunes, some songs of the show are simply breathtaking.
Theater sophomore Andy Ingalls brought the audience to laughter as the pompous male-half of the Spamalot love duet The Song That Goes Like This, performed with golden-voiced pre-pharmacy sophomore Sarah Stout. Agbu stopped the show with her provocative performance of Ahrens and Flaherty’s Speaking French.
Lyric Players will perform a final show at 7 p.m. Saturday in the Oberholtzer Ballroom. Donations are encouraged.
