[REVIEW THIS PRODUCTION]

A good ole Southern comedy!

Onstage Atlanta's production of "Eula Mae's Beauty, Bait and Tackle" is a definite crowd pleaser. The show keeps you laughing from start to finish, and if you've lived in the South for any significant amount of time, you'll definitely be able to relate to the story. Most of the problems I had with this show stem mostly from the way the play is written. Since most of the show is "monologue", the "dialogue" scenes seem very chaotic and improvised, this is probably due to the fact that the actors have perfected each monologue, making you laugh and suddenly at the right time, becoming very poignant (Topher Payne's Tammy Wynett monologue is amazing). The show also comes to a screeching halt after the pageant scene, making you wish the show would "hurry up and end." This is however, no fault of the actors. I was very impressed with the actors, considering most of the show is delivered through long character monologues--which to me are always harder than dialogue. The set was also very nice, an area Onstage usually skimps on, looks like a genuine Beauty Bait and Tackle shop! The stand-out in this production by far is Topher Payne who plays the roles of Eva Mae and Rita Mae, a mother/daughter combo. You must see this production, if for no other reason to see Rita Mae's tap/baton twirling/latina music talent piece at the end of the show...Topher's comedy is definitely on par with some of the best SNL talent in recent history. Don't miss this one kids...it will definitely keep you smiling. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
