Director Keith Nichols and the actor playing Cocky, Micah Neiss, talk about Ti-Ahwaga Community Players production of the Anthony Newley/Leslie Bricusse musical The Roar of the Greasepaint, the Smell of the Crowd. It’s not a standard “book” musical, but an allegory played out on a game board.
The musical takes a look at the differences between the upper and lower classes of British society in the 1960s. The show is filled with songs that have become standards, including “Who Can I Turn To?,” “Feeling Good,” and “The Joker.”
The show runs through June 14th at the Ti-Ahwaga Performing Arts Center, 42 Delphine St., Owego.
