I was at the performance on Sunday and that young man changed characters so effectively and energetically... even with a script, that actor rose to the occasion splendidly. Someone get him to Blumenthal.
I'd also give Caroline Renfro props as a first-time director for Appalachian Creative Theatre's Red Light Winter, one of the best shows I saw this year.
Can I mention that Perry is the worst reviewer that I have ever seen? I mean, time after time I am left wondering if he is simply drunk when he goes to a show. This is insane. Time and time again he mentions things that didn't happen, or recalls events incorrectly - the reviews are slapdash at best, and at worst it's like he was at an entirely different show than the one he's reviewing!
Seeing this show is truly a unique experience. Highly recommended.
just because of the name is worth seeing! good article will check it out next week.
Saw this show an loved it! QCTC has done it again!
Great show. Glad to see some new blood onstage. Next step: Now retire that old red Leather Couch. Its been in way too many CAST productions.
You must have seen a different 'Pippin' than we did. I would definitely not give the overhyped 'Kinky Boots' a better rating. Patina Miller and her gang of circus fiends did far more for the Broadway scene in their tiny little theatre than all of these other shows put together. I've never had so many random NYers approach me after any play to ask about it and rave over it. The dancing is there, the Fosse is definitely there, and the circus elements elevate that theme of 'how far would you go?' etc.; they don't detract. There wasn't a single performer that wasn't on the mark. Matthew James Thomas, Andrea Martin, Charlotte d'Amboise, and yes, the great Terry Mann were a brilliant ensemble.
Mr. Mann, by the way, got his start in 'Barnum' and he has that background before he took Broadway by storm. The juggling and whatnot were not new tricks, but an old dog coming full circle.
Tell 'em Perry!
