I Do, I Do! book and lyrics by Tom Jones, music by Harvey Schmidt, directed by Jim Wadzinski, will premier New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31, 2011. Playing the lead roles will be a very talented couple, Amy Miller-Martin and Ryan Martin. The married team has participated in several of the BLT’s 50th Anniversary productions. Ryan was last seen on the BLT stage in, Three Murders and It’s Only Monday! They were both seen on stage in the musical Pippin, in which Ryan portrayed Prince Pippin and Amy the part of Fastrada. Their directing and acting talents were made apparent in the success of Crimes of the Heart and The Lost Tribe. Amy also stared in the BLT’s 2010 New Year’s Eve production of The Last Five Years. Other BLT productions in which our audiences enjoyed their work was Beauty and the Beast, in which Ryan played the Beast and Amy, the opera singing wardrobe, Madame De La Grand Bouche.
