Special Thespie Award: THE LION IN WINTER (2020)
Kevin and Tanya Burnham for “Lion in Winter,” at Starlight. The shutdown halted the show after two performances, so most of the voters weren’t able to see it. Those who did, however, said the married Burnhams were excellent playing a married couple that was royal and in disarray.

LSJ Letter To The Editor:
More should check out Starlight Dinner Theatre
Lately I have met a number of folks living in the Lansing area who never heard of the Starlight Dinner Theatre or if they have, know very little about it or that it is located in a large room at the Waverly East Intermediate School at 3131 W. Michigan Ave. I consider it to be one of Lansing’s unique treasures where adults can see a play (usually a comedy) preceded by a wholesome catered dinner, including desserts and beverages (non-alcoholic). With soft lighting at circular tables seating eight people, guests can relax and visit while dining before the show begins at 7:30 p.m. Show-only patrons, who do not wish to have dinner, are also seated at the tables according to when they made their reservations and as soon as they find their assigned table. I hope more people become aware of its uniqueness and learn more about the coming shows by calling (517) 243-6040 or checking the website at www.starlightdinnertheatre.com. I have thoroughly enjoyed my experiences there as did my late husband.
