Home For The Holidays, by
Warm fuzzies...
Saturday, December 11, 2004
-1.0
This was the first time I had seen a show a stage door. It is a nice intimate space which gives in well to the Christmas "fluff" and "warm fuzzies" that Home for the Holidays has to offer.
Let me start off by first commending the set. I was amazed at the craftmanship when I first walked into the theatre. However, to my complete suprise, it then turned to reveal the inside of the main "house" set. To say the least it was impressive.
In my humble opinion, the strongest point of the ensemble as a whole was not the voices, but the characters in which they embodied. The characters were intertwinned seamlessly and they made you care about them. In my eyes, if you can get an audience to care for your character, that is better than a hundred amazing singers who cannot.
There were two characters that stood out... the mother and father. Their commic relief was not only hilarious but stuck in at just the right point to release you from the usual "Miracle On 34th Street" feeling that these performances usually exude.
Shawn Hale was undoubltably my favorate performer. He not only had the comic timing of the character down to a T, but he also showed his true acting merrit in the solo "Butterfly Kisses." I don't often cry in the theatre, but this show definately brought tears to my eyes. -Wonderful performer-
Overall a well thought out show that brought me into the Christmas Spirit before the mall decorations had a chance to!
Kudos!
