Expertly directed by Marcy Goodnow, this show exceeded all of my expectations. I was on the edge of my seat through every twist and turn. By intermission, I was extremely impressed with all of the talent, creativity and hard work that has clearly gone into this production.
Nearing the end of act two, I wondered if my eyeliner would be okay as I wiped the tears from my eyes. Every single person in this cast was so talented, and there were a few that really stood out, excelling in both lighter moments and true emotional depth.
Brooke Bigelow (interviewed in the last post) played the lead, Sal Hiddle. She was endlessly lovable and behaved very truthfully in every situation. Her eyes sparkled with emotion as she delivered lines straight from her heart. Though she had a lot of text to work with and memorize, she absolutely nailed it.
Rebecca Slason and Miles McMahan, The two actors playing Sal’s grandparents were a very believable couple, and the love that they had for each other was palpable. In addition to both of them providing some excellent comedic relief, McMahan delivered an outstanding monologue near the end that was very impactful.
Finally, Josie Scruggs (who played Phoebe) not only had great comedic delivery, but also acted with authenticity and felt incredibly real in her more dramatic moments.
Please go see this incredible show if you get the chance. I promise that you will not be disappointed.
