Nicely Done!

It is always a pleasure visiting STG. The theatre is very nice in downtown fairburn, and I always enjoy their shows.

They best singing voice in my opinion was.....the ensemble. They all blended so well and seemed to have fun singing and dancing onstage. I loved the baseball players..however, a few of them were too young and scrawny to be ball players. Their dance was long and well choreographed but some of the actors seemed to fall behind the more experienced dancers.

The voices that really stood out to me were the actors playing Lola and Meg. Their voices were really focused and seemed more natural than some of the other actors. Young Joe struggled to hit the high notes- he seems more comfortable in a lower register. When he attempted the high notes he would sometimes go flat and his voice would waver. He also made a funny face as he tried to hit the notes- his mouth would open as far as it could and it looked as if his eyes were going to fall out of his head.

The actor playing the coached seemed to speak-sing his lines. He was a very funny actor, tho.

Applegate was smug and charming. He spoke too softly sometimes- but he had great presence onstage.

The costumes and set were great. Costumes very well put together and set was very moveable and set changes ran very smoothly.

I think STG is an amazing community theatre. We need more of those around the atlanta area. Great job STG! Another great show.....keep them coming! [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]

I had an opportunity to see Damn Yankees at the Southside Theatre Guild and I had a great time. I enjoyed many of the performances including, Tommy McDaniel as Applegate, Maureen McDaniel as Lola, Dina Schwam as Meg and Andrew Pucket as Young Joe. The ensemble of baseball players were very enjoyable to watch as well. The set was simple and worked well with movable and turntable type pieces. The bright red of the baseball uniforms looked great against the backdrop of the stage. If you get a chance go down to the Southside Theatre Guild and enjoy Damn Yankees.

pacing is everything

So sorry to have to say this but "damn". The Guild has a beautiful facility and it looked like some of the cast was trying really hard but the show missed the mark. Yankees is a long show so pacing is everything, scene changes with curtains closing adds many minutes that need to not be there and breaking the 4th wall when the audience can't see or hear makes the show choppier. The "devil" was very good and entertaining and Lola tried hard but she missed on the sexy. She seemed tense and maybe the lights were hitting her wrong but she seemed to be singing to the rafters not the audience. But she is a very pretty girl and has a pleasant voice, she just seemed uncomfortable with the role.I hope to see her in something more suited to her talents. There were some lights on the speakers that were very distracting, maybe because of wiring issues they had to be on but it was not good. The men's chorus was a little tired and the number with Gloria seemed to drag on and on but the young man "Bryan" was really good. He is young but seems to really enjoy theatre and it shows. He looked good and was very active in all of his scenes, that's always nice, looking like you want to be there and are having a good time. The lost souls scene was nice, good touch with the fog but red lights under the fog would give a more helly look, it looked like clouds and i thought that they didn't go up and the flash pots were a nice touch too. I wish the Guild good luck with their future shows but the slow entrances/exits and dialoge really hurt this show. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
