Robert Grassi thinks having a live theatre in Oro Valley is nice, but then goes on to say nothing but negative things about the concept. I attended the first matinee presentation of “Pistol Pete” at The Great American Playhouse in Oro Valley and had a great time. The performers were well studied, they performed and sang beautifully, the oleos were great, the piano accompaniment and entertainment was excellent. I was impressed as were others. It was a full house and when I was leaving, there were many families coming to the next performance. Now we can attend melodrama theatre as a family, laugh, boo the villain and cheer the hero without offending anyone. Younger people may not have experienced this type of theatre, and seniors can recall the “good old days”. The concept Mr. Grassi refers to, is just that, it is a concept that has endured through the centuries in many different versions. I enjoy the fact that I can find quality, fun, entertainment in my own community and I wish The Great American Playhouse much success.
