Musical pop concert opens Tuesday at UND Burtness Theatre
Forget “South Pacific” and “Oklahoma.” When it came to picking a spring musical at UND, theater students balked at doing a traditional musical. “My Generation,” the show they’re doing instead, isn’t a musical at all, said director and theater instructor Emily Cherry. Featuring songs by today’s headlining entertainers — Lady Gaga, LMFAO, Adele and more — it’s really more of a pop concert than a musical, said Cherry, assistant professor in the UND Department of Theatre Arts.
