WHERE'S CHARLEY? - IT'S A GRAND MUSICAL AT THE EUREKA THEATRE
CHARLEY'S AUNT HAS REVISED
THE COMEDIC CHESTNUTS STARTED FROM THE 1890'S. AND IT'S STILL STANDING
Jack Benny's 1941 film and many revisions are outrageous. Now we have many versions. But, I'm glad to have people like Ed Norton (star) along with several other showcases on the stage.
I was overwhelmed at the 'Eureka'. The entire cast gave everyone many yeoman years. This year is the best that I've ever seen - especially when Charlie goes from Women's Dresses to men's clothes. This thrilling show excites all. There is a gorgeous Piano that overwhelms. Some of the guys popped with a deviled egg. The crowd bent over constantly.
There are many people in the show -- and they include girls and boys: It goes - "My darling, My Darling - I love you so"- Jack and Kitty - what a sensational voices. Hey why not? They are all addressing their hair, as the Gossips eyes pop out.
Charley is so much fun as he masquerades as he pretends to be the aging Aunt.You can imagine how the whole audience is bent over as they hurdle along the way. The popular song "Once In Love With Amy" brings even more thrill to the stage. Love is Love!
Departure's boys - and girls get a little depressed. After the girls leave the stage (wow) - the Boys take over the stage (more wow! Legs are up in the air as the Grand Ensemble twitter along the way.
Charley's Aunt (in early days) play men and females. It's like "Kinky Boots, and La Cage Aux Folles). This show has been a great success on Broadway...and it's still running around the world.
A TRULY FASCINATING SHOW - TERRIFIC!
