A Show to remember!!

What can I say about the classic that everyone loves. The Music Man by Meredith Willson has been a favorite of mine for years and for some reason the production at the Little General/ Cobb Community Playhouse was one of the best.
With the Musical and Acting Talents of the cast and directors, this is the show to see.
Marian Paroo (Kristine Lynch) will have you wanting more. She has a way of making you laugh and then she will turn right around and make you cry. She has a voice that will make the strongest heart melt.
Harold Hill (Kyle Price), who obviously has done this before. There were a few missed lines, but his timing was good.
Marcellus Washburn (Steven Kamishlian) played the role that everyone would love to play, the side kick to the swindler. He was full of energy and it showed while singing and dancing to Shipoopi. A wonderful character for a great singer/actor.
Eulalie Mackecknie Shinn (Zanny Leach-Dillson) was the high light of the show for me. Where the directors found this character the world my never know. With her stern, but campy role as the Mayor's wife she had me rolling in my seat.
I think the directors must of known what they were doing when they were looking for this cast. This is a must see for all. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
The Music Man Takes Note

A Meredith Willson classic about a con man who comes to town to swindle, but stays and falls in love.
Directed by Shawn Loflin and Marta Summer. This is by far the best musical I have seen out of Little General Playhouse. I do not know if it was new blood running the show, but it is working for the playhouse. The direction of the play was superb and the sound of the cast was excellent.
Kristine Lynch (Marian Paroo) was brilliant in her character and to top her performance off, she has a voice that will make any grown person cry. With her octave range and clarity, I see her doing a lot more theater in the Atlanta area. The pick-a-little ladies were hilarious. How they got that song out, I will never know. Of course we cannot forget about the wonderful quartet. Great harmony with every thing they sang.
I am not sure if this is true or not, but I overheard someone talking in the lobby saying this was one of the biggest opening weekends for the playhouse and I honestly see why. Oh course for an opening weekend there were a few minuet errors, but it did not take away from my enjoyment of the show.
I recommend everyone see this play. Trust me when I say it is worth it. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
