The School for Wives, by Moliere
Light and Fun
Monday, June 30, 2003
Okay - you will not become enlightened watching this play. It will not change your life. It is fun - f-u-n. If you do not want that - then do not go. The acting is first rate and the set design is imaginative. Moliere’s repartee is witty and rhymes. I happen to be a major fan of Chris Kayser's comedic talents. He is a very good physical actor. I enjoy watching him “do his thing.” I had not seen this play before, and it was a lovely surprise. I took two elderly ladies. They liked it as much as I did. We all left with good feelings and happy thoughts. If you want to have a light, happy experience at the theater, then I think you will enjoy watching “The School for Wives.”

Note: The repartee is (at times) so fast that I am glad I asked for seats close to the front so that my friends could hear everything.

Bat Boy: The Musical, by Laurence O'Keefe, Keythe Farley, Brian Flemming
Different is Good
Saturday, June 7, 2003
This was a surprise. After reading the review in the AJC, I wasn't prepared for anything so good. I really loved everything about this. Much of the acting was meant to be funny and silly (it wouldn't be Dad's without that) - but the guy who played Bat Boy was physically incredible. I couldn't believe how good he was! He made the concept of a "Bat Boy" believable. For the most part the singers did well concidering how demanding the score was - with lots of key changes and a wide range. I truly loved the songs. They were beautiful and haunting. I would like to hear them again on CD .

This play is very very different than anything I have seen before - but that is true of so many of the plays at Dads. I guess I just like "different".

All I Can Say is "Wow!"
Sunday, January 12, 2003
This is a lively production that will hold any child's interest.
The whole cast was first rate. The woman who played Lilly was adorable!
(I think she was born to play a mouse.) I liked the production, but
was surprised that it was actually three books in one play. If I were
going with children who were not familar with Henkes books, I would
read the books to them before going (especially the Julius books and
Lilly). Other than that, go and enjoy yourself and bring a little
friend or two.

I'm going again!
Wednesday, July 10, 2002
I have seen this show twice. The first time was great, the second time was even better because the actors were more relaxed. It is a different kind of show and I don't think it's for everyone (I wouldn't take my mother for instance). This is not a slick production - it is a stretch - even for Dad's. You have to have an open mind to appreciate it and an audience that gets into it. I'm going to go again.

Dad's Garage Comedy Improv 2000-2001, by Dad's Garage Players
If you like to laugh - this is the place to do it.
Sunday, November 12, 2000
Saturday night we laughed so hard - we cried. It was a very funny show. I don't know how these guys just keep coming up with great stuff. The only thing that didn't work was a song they all tried to sing. (Although the rap song was really funny and well done.) I think one of the things I like best about the show is that you never know what is going to happen - you just have to give it up and go with the flow.
Great show guys!
