Whitney got her birthday bash off to a great start by singing a few of her favorite musical theater songs, accompanied by Joey Clark on the piano. Some from shows she's been in, some from shows she'd like to be in, all from shows I'd love to see her in! From Into the Woods to Kinky Boots, with a few original songs (or at least lyrics) thrown in to make this a very personal and entertaining show. Joining her on a few duets were her talented friends Eric Morris and Max Wojtanowicz. What a wonderful way to celebrate a birthday and a beloved Minneapolis theater!

I'm continually amazed at the talent in this town, especially at fun informal events like this. Thanks to Whitney Rhodes for sharing her talents, her talented friends, and her birthday celebration with us. I'm looking forward to what she will accomplish in her 30s!
