DO I HEAR A WALTZ? YOU'LL FIND OUT!





 STATS: Sky High: (This Day)

O.K - THE MUSICAL HAS A PRETTY GOOD PEDIGREE - 
BUT THE SHOW HAS NEVER BEEN A TOTAL SUCCESS 

However, no matter what - This 42nd Street Moon production has put on a Grand looking cast. I loved the score - but there are some empty spaces in between. Emily Skinner provides star quality. And Stephanie Rhoads makes a welcome return return that brings glamour to the landlady role. Tyler McKenna has those love interest eyes. 

Jonah Broscow has great effortless hutzpah - as the young boy. And the girls just can't keep their eyes off of him. What fun. 

Richard rodgers melodies are certainly memorable. Wish the evening would have moved on just a little faster - but Stephen Sondheim's lyrics are still clever and funny. Arthur Laurents book is bitter sweet. 

The story is mostly set in the Garden of the Pensione Fioria. The ending may not totally satisfy, but you will definitely hear a waltz. Enjoy the music and words. There is just one little glitch -- it would be nicer if there were some amps that we could hear better. Sometimes we hear it, and other times we strain. 

Well the songs are not that relevant - but on top of that, the songs are mostly forgettable. Still - the singing and acting draws us to the talent. 

HERE ARE THE TALENTED STARS: Emily Skinner* - Taylor Bartolucci, Jonah Broscow (the boy) amazes in the fifth grade at Chabot Elementary in Oakland - Nikita Burshteyn - Lucinda Hitchcock Cone* - Tyler McKenna* - David Naughton, Stephanie Rhoads* - 
Michael Rhone - And... Abby Sammons
