A musically staged display of Talkeetna Past and Present…
article by Steve Durr
2015 marks the start of a new era for local theater in Talkeetna with the production of an all-original Alaskan musical – – The Fatal Flaw. Composed and written by long time Talkeetna musician Steve Durr, The Fatal Flaw takes a fond, often hilarious look at the crusty characters that inhabit the remote back country and the wily saloon girls that prey on them in the small town taverns of the last frontier.
Through all the humor and high spirits a tender love theme winds its way; young Frank (played by David Nelson) and feisty young Magdalena Vista Verde (Kayti Heller) come face to face with the Fatal Flaw – – love! Love is the monkey wrench that rattles the foundation of their mutual stubbornness and resentments. Love is the banana peel that always seems to be underfoot. Forty years later old-timer Frank (Steve Durr) and hardened bar owner Magdalena (Andrea Armstrong) still can’t seem to unwrap the enigma that is their mutual love and disdain for each other. Oh well.
Directed by Steve Durr whose encouragement to the cast goes something like this: “You’re just playing yourselves!” the Fatal Flaw features a great live band, complete with violin, clarinet, and trumpet just to give it a little mariachi flavor.
This is an adult show, there is language that doesn’t fit in church or school, parents are encouraged to use their judgment and please – – no kids under ten.
March 27 & 28, April 3 & 4 at the Sheldon Performing Arts Theater in Talkeetna.
