Joel Abels

by Lorie Lewis Ham

At KRL we enjoy putting the spotlight on some of the wonderful local talent we are blessed with in this Valley. Because it is Father’s Day weekend, we decided to profile someone who is not only an actor and director, but someone who has worked many times locally with his actress daughter–local actor and director Joel Abels.

This weekend A Little Night Music opened in Fresno at the Cal Arts Severance Theatre presented by StageWorks Fresno. As usual, StageWorks Fresno never disappoints. It was a wonderful show filled with incredible talent.

Over the past few weeks I have had the pleasure of seeing here in the Valley the productions of three Tony Award winning and incredible musicals! One of those was Next To Normal presented by StageWorks Fresno. I had seen this show before presented by a touring company in San Jose with some of the original Broadway cast, so I was very excited to see it again.
