Forever Plaid, by Stuart Ross
Dig those plaids!
Monday, April 18, 2005
I got to see the final production of this show and the fab four did not disappoint. I did not see any geriatrics on the stage, but I'll let young Mr. Okeley see what he thinks about that 10 or 15 years down the line when someone calls him old! I noticed the age differences, but I honestly didn't care because it was so enjoyable. The plot is really secondary to the music anyway, so it was not important to me that all of these guys couldn't have gone to high school together. In any event, down to the business at hand. These guys sounded really great together for the most part, and there was some great little acting bits as well. The Ed Sullivan thing was hysterical! I agree with Okeley about the microphones and wished they had really used them. Jim Jarrell had some screaming moments, but I'll chock that up to the last show and a tired voice. For the most part he sang well and his character was well received by the audience. I agree with Okeley that Greg Williamson was serivecable in his role but I guess I was waiting for something more from his character. He sang beautifully, but a little softly at times. Shawn Hale was being, well, Shawn Hale. What can I say about that? He was great as himself! He sounded great and it was a great role for his last one here for the next six months (he got a job as a social host on a ccruise ship). We'll miss you Shawn! The real standout was Mat Sewell. Not only was he surprisingly singing bass (get down on those notes, baby!), but he had great dance moves and his character was hysterical. And I can't forget to mention the surprise performances of Courtney Loner and Robert Egizio, fab as usual. Linda Uzelac was also her usual wonderful self up there on the keys, and she did a geat job working with the guys to get a great sound. Kudos to you and Robert for a show well done!

Dig that concert thing!

Wanted to say how much I really enjoyed Ragtime: In Concert. I know there has been a comment about how we might be missing out on the acting and dancing portions of musical theater, but I like the chance to just focus on the music and the musical talent. Speaking of talent, I must commend the queen of the keys Linda Uzelac on her always flawless and driven performance. Kudos to Jeffery and Linda for their casting as well. The voices of the ensemble cast were excellent for the most part, especially Eric Catania and Jerrica Knight. Way to go and I look forward to more concert performances!
