Charming and Intimate
by Ophelia98

4.0
After not having seen this show in over 8 years, it was pleasant to revisit it once more at Stage Door Players last weekend. The last time I saw this show in 1994, it was on a huge stage and the show lost something in its lack of intimacy, something SDP manages to achieve in its cozier venue. You're supposed to feel like you're eavesdropping on private conversations with each number.

The Maltby/Shire score is still witty and insightful about relationships and life in general...Sort of a predacessor to "I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change."

The four principal singers handle the sometimes complex numbers with agility and style and are complimented by Bob Schultz's energetic staging. Standout numbers include "Miss Byrd", "One of the Good Guys", "Three Friends" and "I'll Get up Tomorrow Morning".

If I have one criticism, it's that this show was obviously written during the 80's with mentionings of Jane Fonda workout videos and "power lunches" somewhat dating the material. Nevertheless, this is still an enjoyable evening at the theatre. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
