Pierce Arrow 2014 -- changes

This article from this week's Branson Tri-Lakes discusses the MANY changes in the Pierce Arrow show for 2014. Not only is Mike Bliss the new comedian, Law Washington is the new lead singer/emcee plus Scott is now singing bass and Jimmy is now singing baritone.

Thanks so much for the article, BC.

It will definitely be a different show than we are used to at Pierce Arrow Theater. Much luck for the coming season to the entire crew.

Agreed. Not sure where he searched for this comedian, but he needed to look harder.

Used to be our favorite show in town. We were very disappointed this past week.

Around town.

Since there appeared to be one or two Mike Bliss fans here previously, I did not say anything, wanting to fit in.



But, then again, it would be tough to follow Dougherty/Fennel. That's some pretty funny stuff, generally speaking.

Unlike some posters you apparently did see the show this year. I think the show is a show that is being changed on the fly. My guess, is Mr. Britton, who has pretty much always given us a good product, will make the necessary adjustments to give us a show to enjoy.

I dunno, it's kinda like when Johnny Carson left The Tonight Show, despite the sad juggling act that NBC has done over the years, the fact is that the show was NOT as funny or entertaining, nor as classy, as when Johnny Carson was THE show. When you ARE the best, no one else will ever measure up to you, Got a feeling that is what we are going to see long term concerning JD and the rest of the former cast.

The show they've been doing so far this year hasn't been what it will be soon... according to the story, Law won't join the show full time until this weekend and once he does, that's when it'll be all new... Like the story says, they're returning an emphasis to singing rather than comedy, realizing how different Mike and Jarrett are as performers... Dan has always done his best to put on a quality show and several people have pointed to it being their favorite in the past, so there's no need to pass judgement until the new show is up and running...

BTW, as discussed in another thread, there was some legal action regarding JD's act and he won't be able to do the characters and bits he "borrowed" from other performers... It'll be interesting to see exactly how funny he is without that...

Because he lifts beagles by their ears and shows off his appendix scar?

β€œ(Storms) is moving, along with his family, to open a recording studio in Bozeman, Mont.,” Britton said. β€œHe has been with me for eight years and will be sadly missed.”

My fellow Americans, and the rest of you, I come to you with a heavy heart.
