The Butterfly Scroll, by Book by Misty Simmons, Lyrics by Jennifer Simmons, Music by Scott simmons
The Butterfly Scroll: A rolling comedy
Wednesday, July 13, 2005
4.0
This play is just too good. It is hilarious, uplifting, simple, and beautiful. It is amazing what life the artists can breath into the play despite a simple stage and very few props.

The play is woven around familiar themes; princesses and princes, witches and magic, and jealousy and trickery. But, the way they have combined a period design with modern elements to weave an intense drama around basic human emotions is fabulous. Also, as it is a musical, several of these characters are required to sing and the richness and control of their voices amazed me. The musician playing backstage did a geat job, and I heard later that the drummer who was not able to make it to the show that evening is really good too.

I found at least one singing part a bit drawn out towards the beginning, and there were a couple of times when I thought the comedy was overdone. But, when the play was done, I felt myself almost wanting to stand up and clap. And that speaks a lot, for I don't like to get up in a hurry.
