Moonlight & Magnolias, by Ron Hutchinson
Moonlight feels right!
Friday, May 13, 2011
4.5
Just saw this production last night and was enchanted! Tho technically a "community theatre" production. this show plays professional!
Ms. Taliaferro makes her directorial debut like shes a seasoned pro. She cast a very talented and accomplished group of actors.
Jeffery Bigger commands the stage as David O'Selznick. As demanding and bombastic as this mogul is, Mr. Biggers also shows us why his character is as demanding as he is, how the artistic needs of the production and his character's personal demons compel him to exorcise the best out of his hires. Exceptional acting.

Mr. Carr portrays Victor Fleming as an swashbuckling rogue with demons of his own. His Errol Flynn/Clark Gable panache deliciously dissolves into slapstick comedy as the demands of the overbearing O'Selznick take their toll.

Mr. Dailey is an excellent foil to the excesses of the others. He takes a more sensible, pragmatic and dare I say moral read to his Hecht but is also quite a capable comedic actor in his own right.

Ms. Campbell's stage time is short but she capably plays the longsuffering Miss Poppenghul.

This production is well acted, well lit, well staged, and is very funny. It also makes some poignant points about the role of staying true to artistic vision as the world wakes up to the rising tide of fascism and anti-semitism in Europe and the local country club. Well done folks! Go see this show!
