Anything Goes, by Cole Porter
New leadership makes a great difference....
Thursday, February 22, 2007
3.0
The theatre looks significantly better than it did. It was great sitting in seats that weren't torn and squeaky! The paint job inside, new decorations and removal of the theatre concession stand box were well overdue. Having wine available, crackers, cheese and fruit were nice additions and make this theatre now seem more like a "real" theatre.

For the show, we saw it on the 2nd night - Saturday. The stage was much better than in prior presentations at this playhouse. The acting team did a nice job considering the amount of time they had to prepare for the show. The singing, however, was suboptimal and at times was as Simon Cowell would say "painful." Consideration should be given to perhaps lip synch to prerecorded music for the songs that the actors cannot sing in tune or just can't sing well on. Other songs sounded OK.

My husband & I look forward to attending upcoming shows there to see how things progress under the new management team. Hopefully they'll consider offering fewer shows but with having more time for the cast to prepare so that they can give the best performances possible.
