PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL is an action/adventure show based on Baroness Orczy's famous 20th century novel about the French Revolution: the battle for Liberty, Equality and Fraternity. The book and lyrics by Nan Knighton are at times funny and at others horrifying. Frank Wildhorn's music is moving and passionate.

Onstage just keeps on topping itself
by Okely Dokely

5.0
I have not enjoyed every show I've seen at Onstage Atlanta, but when they're "on", boy are they ever "on." As far as directing fabulous shows this year goes, Robert is 4 for 4. I had chills from the moment I arrived at the theatre early and heard the cast warming up. I saw Danny Cook play Miles Gloriosus and Jekyll/Hyde, and I would like to know when his album is coming out. Every time I see him I wonder more and more what the hell he is doing still in Atlanta when - with his heavenly voice - he could be anywhere. Whenever my girlfriend forgets his name, all I have to say to remind her is: "you know, that guy with like...the best voice ever" and she goes "oh yeah!" I am looking forward to seeing him take large steps once again in "Forum" at the Shakespeare Tavern in the spring.

It is refreshing to see that Jerrica Knight hasn't lost any of the special spark of talent she had back in her teenage high school years. My dreams have come true of being wowed once again by her. Equally impressive is Eric Catania as Percy, who was very appealing. The cast is incredible right down to the last ensemble member, and Linda Uzelac on the piano? I think that lady has at least 3 hands.

Onstage Atlanta, you have my very enthusiastic Bravo! Hold your head even higher and into the fire we go... [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
What are YOU Doing in Atlanta by Dedalus
"Every time I see him I wonder more and more what the hell he is doing still in Atlanta when - with his heavenly voice - he could be anywhere."

Every time I read something like this, I want to scream.

WHY SHOULDN'T HE BE IN ATLANTA?

This sort of comment betrays a non-regional bias I've heard far too often, as if talent has no right to go where it wants to but has to be sequestered in New York and Los Angeles.

Does it ever occur to you that maybe he LIKES Atlanta?

Sorry to vent, but you really touched one of my buttons here ...

I can never think of good comment titles by Okely Dokely
Didn't mean to push your buttons, I was just saying it to illustrate the point that I really like the guy. All I meant was he could very well be on Broadway or in L.A. if he wanted to be. Since he's one of my all-time favorites, I hope he stays here, actually. If you thought that I was saying he had no right to be here or he has to be somewhere else, then you were reading way too much into my statement.

Thank you for the comment. My reviews hardly ever get comments.
Thanks...not going anywhere by danjcook
Thanks for the kind comments. For better or worse for the Atlanta theatre community, I'm staying here. I have a daughter who is my life, and I don't want to drag her to NYC or LA.
In appreciation by Linda Harmony
Actually I want to thank Okely for a glorious review but most especially for acknowledging the Musical Director, especially since the work of the MD is integral to the outcome of musicals and revues! Thank you!
