The Diary of Anne Frank, by Wendy Kesselman
Glad I went!
Monday, April 9, 2007
4.0
I am surprised no one has reviewed this play yet. We went to see it Sat night. I had heard it was good, and was not disappointed. The entire cast was great. I was especially impressed with Michael Dillson as Mr. Van Daan and Jessie Bishop as Margot Frank. Both played their roles very well. You could see the inner turmoil and feel their dispair at times. The characters were very real and beleivable. As a matter of fact, it really isn't fair to choose only two, because the entire cast was very good. Moving, and sincere. Each seem to know their character and instead of just pretending to be them, they WERE them for their time on stage. If I had to give one critique, it would be that Arielle Geller seems to yell her lines a bit too much. But, maybe that is because she is so young, and was playing a character who is full of life. She is a delight to watch at any rate. Go see this play! You will not be dissapointed. I was even impressed with the technical aspects. The lighting and sound effects were very well done and the costumes were dead-on.

Anything Goes, by Cole Porter
Don't overlook the good!

3.0
In reading the other reviews I am amazed at how some wonderful things were overlooked about this production. I am aware that not all of the vocals are great, however, some of the acting IS. As Billy Crocker, Craig Jones is a wonderful blend of an over-the-top, slapstick comedian and lovesick broker. Jim Albert plays Moonie just as he was meant to be played-hilariously! And he is a great singer, even while singing in character voice! It is worth seeing just to hear his rendition of "Be Like The Bluebird." Camille Wall exudes sex appeal as Reno Sweeney. Her duet of "Let's Misbehave" with Sir Evelyn Oakleigh -played by Chris Fail, is delightful. Amanda Whittle was born to play "sweet" and her vocals on "All through the Night" are beautiful. So tender and ...well...sweet. Buddy Everhart does his role of Elisha J. Whitney perfectly. And although I may be a bit biased, Aliya Hutcheson is delightful as Bonnie LeTour! Tonight's performance was far superior to last Saturday night's. I think Bill Jury and the entire theatre should be commended. It may take a while to completely overcome the trials they have been thru...but I feel this production shows they are coming to life! Anything Goes may not be perfect, but it is very entertaining and has some talent that is very much worth seeing.
