PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

The air is thick with excitement on the evening of a new play's out-of-town opening in 1940s Boston. Join the main players with their pre-show jitters and post-show anxieties in this firsthand look at what goes on behind the curtain. These outrageous and lovable characters whose loyalties remain as long as success is in sight will have you laughing and gasping at their personal theatrics. A show about show people, Light up the Sky is fun, fast-paced and full of laughter.

What a disapointment!

My first time at the Alliance. Knowing the other works of Moss Hart, I wanted to LOVE this play passionately. It sounded like my ideal night at the theatre. The set was jaw-dropping gorgeous! I could have stared at that alone for two hours and have been happy. But then the actors came out for Act One and it all went downhill from there. A flat, lackluster, predictable script that wasn't particulary funny (I only laughed out loud once), actors who mugged, squawked, screamed and overacted shamelessly - without making me care one iota about them, and gawdy, overblown costumes that looked more like rejects from Dynasty. The only characters I cared at all about were the mousy ghostwriter (who's badly dressed like a stereotypical spinster and has almost nothing to do but hang around and gawk at these nasty people) and the young idealist playwright. Amateurish direction with way too much kickline blocking. And what the heck was that gorgeous grand piano doing on stage at all if it was only going to be used as a coat rack all evening! Oh, I could go on and on. I'm giving it a 2 becuase of the set, but even that's not enough to recommend this dud. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]

I must say for the first time I actually left the Alliance extremely pleased with what I had seen.
Light Up The Sky is what theatre should be. The direction was magnificent and the actors were amazing. Not to mention the costumes and set.
The stand out performance for the evening was, without a doubt, Mark Brey "Carleton Fitzgerald".

Now I realize the Alliance is out of most people's price range.
However, for lovers of the theatre I suggest you beg, borrow, or steal to have a chance to see this production. You won't be sorry. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]

Light Up the Sky is given a bright, opulent, over-the-top (in a good way) production at the Alliance. The cast is excellent and the show is fun for all ages! [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
