I have just seen Onstage Atlanta's production of the Atlanta premeire; Victor/Victoria. With all of the casting issues in the early stages of the production, I have to say the company pulled everything together quite well.|
Though it is a show with full ballads (and I'm not exactly a ballad lover) there was high energy and much dedication and promise that was commited to the show.
Scott Ebert's performance as "Toddy" was absolutely outstanding. I had seen Scott in "Urinetown: The Musical," which also was put on at OSA, and I really didn't know he could hit the notes that he did so successfully.
Laine Binder's portrayal of Norma Cassidy made me love Chicago women with huge moles on their faces. Her performance of "Chicago, Illinos" gave me chills. I would have to say it was my favorite song of the entire show, and she did it justice.
Kathleen McCook did an exceptional job in performing both "Victor" and "Victoria" in the piece. She has a beautiful voice and I wish I could have heard more of it, in the sense of non-ballads.
Over all the show was very well put together. There were some things I would have adjusted. There were some points where I thought it was a high school musical, but other points where I thought that we were out in the professional world watching some of the greatest stars put on the stage.
If you haven't seen the show already, you definately should go out right now, buy tickets, and see the show. There are only a few more performances left, and you will definately enjoy it.
Urinetown: the PERFECT musical to see|

The title says it all! Urinetown: the Musical was, most likely, the best musical I have ever seen in my entire life! There was absolutely no weak link in the entire musical! |
Although some incidents occured outside of the show, it was still the best thing I have ever seen.
You can try to compare this show to any other that you have ever seen, but Urinetown will always win.
The entire cast was powerful evenly (and greatly) in both acting and singing. Each comedic part was played up and had me laughing so hard, I almost fell on the floor! Each scene and song captured me and put me in the moment.
Although I knew the show rather well, it still felt like the first time I have ever seen it!
When Michael Austin and Sims Banes sang together I got the numb feeling that you only feel when you are in love.
This might sound like an extremely cheesey review...but Urinetown: The Musical was by far the best thing I have ever seen.
It's no longer a "Privalege to pee" (sung by Alli Simpson- who was outstanding by the way) now, the show is a definate privalege to see.
So, in conclusion, go see the show! It will be the best thing you have ever done!
