Theatre at the Center’s John Denver Musical Tribute starring Ted Vigil was a wonderful afternoon of music. Vigil said he’s not a John Denver imitator, rather he’s a John Denver tribute artist. He entertained the sell-out audience for just over 2 hours with a song list including most of Denver’s hits.
Ted Vigil has been playing and singing all his life, but his John Denver stylings earned him a first place finish in the Talent Quest 2006 in Laughlin, Nevada, followed by a win in Seattle on KOMO TV 4’s NW Afternoon Celebrity Look Alike Contest which inspired him to start touring with his tribute.
NW Indiana audiences who were lucky enough to see Almost Heaven: John Denver’s America, the last production at TATC which was cut off by Covid, might remember his appearance then. I know I did.
