Little House on the Prairie--The Musical

Dean Butler made this announcement at his blog yesterday:

This summer the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis will present the world premiere of LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE…the musical. There are a couple of interesting developments in this production. As many of you already know Melissa Gilbert will be making her musical theatre debut playing Caroline…and my former Westside Story understudy, Steve Blanchard, will be there playing Charles. Its funny how the Little House world stays connected to itself. I have no doubt that this production will have a huge appeal for Little House fans…the real test of course will be to find out if the production has an appeal for non LIW devotees. We’ll all be waiting and hoping. Dean

Here's an article about this production: News of this musical made it into the pages of USA Today last year.

I am so thrilled to hear that Laura's legacy continues in all kinds of unique ways. I hope some of you have a chance to attend.
