Spinning Tree named Best of 2014 in Kansas City Star

Lauren Braton, a superb singer, has evidently found her artistic home at Spinning Tree Theatre, where she was handed two opportunities to demonstrate her acting ability. She was hilarious as the Countess in “A Little Night Music,” which featured strong performances throughout. (Melinda MacDonald’s performance of “Send in the Clowns” was stunning.)

Then Braton played a very different role in Spinning Tree’s fall production of “Violet,” the delicate musical about a disfigured young woman’s odyssey across the South to be healed by a televangelist. Braton dug deep and delivered a memorable dramatic performance.

Spinning Tree also offered a fall production of “Ghost-Writer,” a literary mystery with Robert Gibby Brand, Jeanne Blau and Katie Kalahurka, all of whom delivered fine performances.
