The Latest from Limelight: DST brings the daylight and we bring the bright lights

Greetings, Limelight Readers!

Ready to spring forward? We have a spring in our step, and more bright lights to complement the extended daylight.

In this week’s “Bright Lights,” our new people-and-entertainment column – we couldn’t wait until Tuesday, we’re getting out the second one now – we have lots o’ news: ‘Lou local Jenna Fischer will be home, lyricist Chad Beguelin’s Broadway-bound again, Cameisha Cotton landed a national ad campaign and Terry Meddows launches Let Me Speak.

This week’s Bright Lights shares timely tidbits on what’s happening on stage, in town and on the networks. We’re giving away tickets to “Come Rain or Come Shine”! Tell us what’s your favorite leading lady role! Memory Lane includes a Muny Moment for the ages.  We’re nudging you to get your tickets to Theater Circle Awards, aka “Theater Prom.” And fondly remembering the late great Joe Pollack.
