The Odd Couple - Female Version, by Neil Simon
Very funny!
Thursday, May 21, 2009
I wanted to write a review about this last month, but school was busy. The Odd Couple at Theatre on Main was one very funny show! I also saw the Odd Couple at Blackwell and that also was very good, but this was my fav.

I think the Theatre on Main's version was a more funny because the tables are turned and the genders are switched! Felex and Oscar become Florence and Olive! The Pigeon sisters become the Costazuela brothers! Yay!

Plus the Theatre on Main version was faster paced, better directed and had a slightly better cast. There were more gags and the acting was more evolved and had greater depth. Both were great but I really liked the female version!

Very funny!

The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Boring, but I like the kids!
Thursday, May 21, 2009
I have seen some really good shows recently at Blackwell, especially Cats and the Cruicible.

So I'm not sure what to think about The Secret Garden. One one hand, the children all perform very well. Mary, Martha and the Nurse give excellent performances. Colin is pretty good too. Mrs. Medlock is the one adult who is excellent, I really liked her.

Overall this Secret Garden is slow and sometimes hard to watch. Craven is terrible, I'm sorry to say. Sowerby and Dickon are forgettable. It was a really hard to watch, very slow and boring most of the time. But I did enjoy a few of the performances. Good work kids!

CATS - The Musical, by T. S. Eliot, music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Thursday, October 23, 2008
I wanted to write this review earlier but school has been overwhelming.

Overall, Cats was a very good show. The blocking was choppy, but the choreography was oh so very good. Overall the cast was very talented and energized, but the music direction and some of the singing was lacking. The tech was excellent by far, for I really enjoyed the lighting, sound and special effects. And the costumes were also very good. By far my favorite part of the show was Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer. Both were better than Broadway. Oh and I really loved Grizabella too.

Although not as good as Into the Woods, Rob Hardie is doing great things at Blackwell. Bravo to Rob and the entire cast! I will be back to see The Producers!

Halloween Dreams, by
Come out to see Halloween Dreams!

I thought I'd chime in here, even after the nasty reviews have been deleted.

Theatre on Main has significantly improved their quality of production over the past year. I have seen some great shows, including "Steel Magnolias" and "Charlie Brown". To me, "Halloween Dreams" doesn't reach these heights, but does it really have too? Come on folks! Its just a fun show done by a community theatre company for Halloween. Give me a break!

So is your family looking for something fun to do before Halloween? Come out to Theatre on Main and see Halloween Dreams!
