Little House on the Prairie: The Musical
Sacramento Community Center Theater1301 L St.
Sacramento, CA 95814
This pleasant but predictable touring musical revisits the 1930s novel and later TV series (1974, with 10-year-old Melissa Gilbert as Laura “Half-Pint” Ingalls). Gilbert, now 45, plays Ma this time around. The show offers few surprises and the songs are so-so, but the production has amiable charm and iconic images of pioneers on the plains. Th 2 & 8pm, F 8pm, Sa 2 & 8pm, Su 2pm. Through 4/25. $18-$65. Broadway Sacramento at the Community Center Theater, 1301 L St.; (916) 557-1999; www.broadwaysacramento.com.
