Im not certain how those aspects would play out in a stage musical, but Id still like to see Little House on the Prairie: the Musical, which comes to the Buell Theatre tonight for a two-week run. Starring Melissa Gilbert who played the role of Laura opposite Michael Landon in the Little House TV series as Ma, the stage version kicked off to boffo crowds in the Guthrie Theater in Minnesota last year and holds the promise of offering quality entertainment for families. Im game to try it; are you? See Little House at the Buell daily except Mondays, through December 27 (the theater will be dark on Christmas Eve); for tickets, which range from $15 to $100, go to www.denvercenter.org or call 303-893-4100.
Tuesdays-Fridays, 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays, 2 & 7:30 p.m.; Wed., Dec. 23, 2 p.m. Starts: Dec. 15. Continues through Dec. 27, 2009
