Promo photo with Eric Kunze as Jesus. The set was a playground and the story was set in a church summer camp. Read my review at my fansite for Eric: www.erickunze.com More information at my blog: www.maggiwun.blogspot.com
Rehearsing the show
The Muny in St. Louis, the largest outdoor theater in North America with 11,000 seats
One of the entrances into the theater.
The Nathan Frank Bandstand on Pagoda Island at the Muny
A picnic area where people gather to eat and watch pre-show entertainment
In the very back are the free seats, which are provided first come, first served for every show
During the day, set building was taking place for the next show, "The Music Man"
The "free" seats
The stage door where we would gather every night to congratulate Eric and the cast
Maggi's trip to St. Louis to see Eric Kunze in "Godspell", July, 2009
Our fanclub dinner at the Chase
Everybody got a battery operated "Eric Kunze Fanclub" fan. They lit up and some of the fans sitting in the front row turned them on during Eric's curtain call. Our equivalent of cigarette lighters!
"The man" himself made an appearance and signed photos for everyone
Later that evening after the show some of the fans gathered for a drink at the Chase.
Jan, Mary, Maggi and Beth had dinner at Bar Italia in the Central West End. We all wore our new rings purchased locally.
Beth arranged a practice session for her and I at Webster University.
Later at the Chase we had the opportunity to play again
The "Jewel Box" conservatory at Forest Park
Anybody know what kind of tree this is?
We did a paddleboat ride at the Boathouse in Forest Park. We didn't have any money on us, so they trusted us to pay later.
It gave the legs a real workout!
We were followed by hungry ducks and saw tons of ducklings
We paddled past the Art Institute
This unicyclist cycled all the way down the steep hill from the Art Institute to the tiny ledge at the water's edge and went all the way around the lake on the edge.
We saw a lot of egrets
Local architecture walking back to the hotel from Forest Park
The Central West End, just around the corner from the hotel had lots of cute shops and al fresco dining
This is where we bought our rings for $1.50 each!
