THE BOY FRIEND
UNUSUALLY FUN AND UNIQUE MUSICAL
RHAPSODIC MUSICAL POWER IS THE BEST
This is one of the best things to happen in San Francisco. It's absolutely wonderful and hilarious. The songs will stick in your head. Oh yes - it brings me back to a time when I had dreams of dancing on the stage. Of course, seeing them on stage REALLY is perfect.
Everyone is perfectly cast. It is so colourful and imaginative. I'm amazed at the sets, routines, and costumes! Youthful charm brings nostalgia to the evening. It's such fun - very much like Busby Berkeley style.
Hardly a "Lost" musical - David Dobrusky (the director is no stranger to the show) And believe this...it fits perfectly into 42nd Street Moon's Campy style. His sparkling production is like vintage champagne good to the last bubble.
And wow -- the colorful costumes sure add a lot to the show especially when combined with bouncing balls in the Beach scene. Now the Girls and Guys can romp all over the place.
It is a bit of a mystery why Tony is dressed more like a country squire than a messenger boy. Traditionally it is well fitted pants and lots of buttons. The program photos shows a different costume.
Things really move along. The direction keeps the show moving at great pace. And hip, hip hooray -- this show is Marvelous and The principals and the Chorus give it their all. They sing and dance "Perfect Young Ladies". And indeed - they are looking for "The Boy Friend".
You'll love this: The boys Adam Roy, Michael Doppe and Burton Thomas... puff up with song and dance that everyone loves.
This is a swell stage version - and a pretty wild one at that. I love the show - "The Boy Friend". To the contrary - I could sit in front of the stage all day. LET'S DO IT! ******
