In 2004, I played Tessa in a well-reviewed production of The Gondoliers on the very same stage (opposite the same set of brothers who are in the show again this time around). I tried to access the Times Argus article online but they tried to rob me of $2.95 for an archived version sans graphics (there was a huge color spread in the newspaper of my warbling mug, which was pretty awesome even though, let's face it, it's not the New York Times). I have a clipping somewhere (all of my newspaper appearances were carefully clipped and saved over the years). I did, however, find the transcript for Neal Charnoff's VPR feature (if you listen to the actual clip you can hear me singing).
Gondoliers are a pretty charming bunch. They speak to each other in a special dialect that only they can understand (no, not Italian--geez, how dumb do you think I am?) and ours was apparently pretty pleased with himself for scoring a foursome of pretty American girls (instead of the more common doughy middle-aged tourists) and would brag about it to every passing boat.
What I'm trying to say is, The Gondoliers and I go way back. And Unadilla is a really great, unique venue--a renovated barn in the middle of nowhere (Calais, VT)--with enough of a reputation to guarantee a relatively talented cast and a lively show! Have a fantastic weekend, and good luck beating the heat! Arrivederci!
