Will Rogers Follies, by Cy Coleman, Betty Comden, Adolph Green
More than I expected

5.0
Friends dragged me to see this show. Before we went we took a look at this site. I had never been on here before. I was scared that I had wasted my money after reading a couple of reviews. I am not sure what some of the reviewers were talking about. What I saw was an above average community theater show, with an above average cast. The costumes were amazing. Some of the images and lighting were fantastic. The show was super high energy and quickly paced. If I had any complaint, it would be some dimmer lighting in spots,but I think that is minor.
I do not understand the need (on what seems like it could be such a constructive site) to annihilate things so heavily. I'm new here, but is the Atlanta Theatre community really that self cannibalistic where they want to destroy one another instead of build each other up? Just curious. I also want to say that I love how the actors connected with the audience. Will and Betty had great chemistry and their voices suited their characters. The ensemble seemed totally lost in their roles (in a good way) I really felt like I was taken on a journey. I recommend it highly.
