Bell, Book, and Candle, by John Van Druten
A "Bewitching" Production
Sunday, October 17, 2004
5.0
"Bell, Book, and Candle" at Decatur's Neighborhood Playhouse proves that local theatre is alive and well in Atlanta. For a community theatre, the play boasts strong production values. The sets are great, as are the costumes. The cast as a whole is excellent, but the two standouts are undoubtedly Coco Chalfant as Queenie Holroyd and Jason Vaughn as Shep Henderson. Coco's Queenie is funny and animated. She brings a sense of mischief and playfulness to the role and is totally engaging whenever she steps on stage. Jason Vaughn is outstanding in his portrayal of publisher Shep Henderson. He is charismatic and intriguing. Shep is a character that could easily come across as flat and uninteresting without the right actor playing him, but Jason breathes life into the role and makes it his own. He creates a character that the audience can easily relate to and empathize with. With his stage presence, I suspect we will see great things from Jason in the future. The show runs for another couple of weeks and I highly recommend that everyone put it on their calendar and go check it out.
