 GREENSBORO, N.C. – Greensboro College Theatre presents the musical revue “Starting Here, Starting Now” Friday-Sunday, Jan. 25-27, in the Annie Sellars Jordan Parlor Theatre in Main Building on campus.

Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Jan. 25-26, and 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 26-27. Tickets are $10 and may be reserved by emailing tickets@greensboro.edu.

Using the songs of Richard Maltby, Jr., and David Shire (“Big,” “Baby,” “Closer Than Ever”), “Starting Here, Starting Now” offers a tender-tough inventory of love and the lonesome lack thereof. Made for each other, the wry lyrics of Richard Maltby Jr., combined with David Shire’s buoyant music, forge a fast-moving, ingratiating look at how love can go right, wrong or nowhere.

This bold, extroverted journey takes a winsome cast of three through the maze of modern relationships with its heart firmly on its sleeve. As with all of Maltby and Shire’s work, each song is an impeccably crafted story – original, engaging, bursting with character and showcasing the versatility and charisma of its performer.

From tender ballads to hysterical husband-hunting laments, from wry comments on trendy marriages to ecstatic shouting-from-the-rooftop celebration, “Starting Here, Starting Now” has an appealing freshness that has made it a perennial favorite throughout the world.

Greensboro College’s Department of Theatre seeks to provide a strong foundation in theatre while allowing the student to emphasize in a particular area such as directing, acting, or arts administration.

The coursework is integrated with the production work to provide a better understanding of the many facets of the theatre. Required participation on stage or backstage on all theatre productions allows the techniques and theories that are examined in the classroom and the laboratory to be tested in a performance setting.
