A racist postcard from the s. If juke-box musicals had been around in George M.
She is not tempted however, and without a star to lead the show Dick is in dire straits. The chorus kids are let off the hook to go get some lunch, when in comes Mary Collins portrayed by Melinda Patterson , fresh off the bus from New Rochelle and eager to make her mark in show business.
Dick blows her off as an amateur, until one of his chorines collapses in the greasy spoon diner and is rushed to the hospital. Out of desperation Dick gives Mary an audition.
She can dance and sing, and although her acting is not terrific, he decides to give her a shot. Of course this Peggy Sawyer-esque character will end up taking on the lead and saving the show. Another plotline involves Legs Ruby Brandon Garlick , the boyfriend of one of the chorus girls, who is on the lam from gambling debts and looking for a place to hide. His storyline provides the most humor as he tries to find different disguises from the wardrobe department, and each time he comes on stage he is in a different outlandish ensemble cobbled together from various past productions. They were funny and goofy and outlandishly dressed and played very well off each other.
The two actors were definitely the high point of the whole production.
The playwright goes to great lengths to set up this conflict, and then nothing ever comes of it, except an opportunity for another song, which is perhaps the whole point. Which will he choose? The score is full of George M. However, the show itself took a while to get on its feet. Act One was slow moving through all the exposition and introduction of every character and the myriad storylines.
At first it seemed that it might be confusing to the audience to follow, but it worked quite well. Bryan Szymanski acted as music director, as well the pianist Eddie Cowles, who did a wonderful job playing the piano live for the musical numbers. I also thought that the ensemble numbers sounded beautiful.
In the current era of canned and pre-recorded music, it was a nice change to have a live accompanist onstage for most of the musical numbers. The choreography relied on using the ensemble in big dance formations and creating interesting pictures onstage to keep visual interest. Anyone looking for a cute show with lots of heart should definitely come and check out the latest offering from Clearfield City.
