CAROUSEL

Each individual performer in this show is phenomenal (with very special mentions to Mia Matheson and Bobbie Sox who are exceptional show stoppers, and Veronica Jean Jones who is a fabulous host). The show itself, however, did not do their talents justice. From the average customer point of view, I went in with the expectation of something a little more classic showgirl and extravagant. Unfortunately, the “modern twist” seemed to be that the production itself seemed a little basic, particularly when compared to the Zigfield Follies. I say this with exception to a few acts. Mia and Bobbie performing Anything Goes was delightful, followed by a fabulous tap number with Lula Liqueur and Penelope Pop. The powder puff act was adorable, however the use of excessive baby powder in audience participation made me wonder if they had issued an asthma warning for their ticket holders. Unfortunately the other acts fell short for me, which is no fault of the performers but just the material that they were performing. A particular low light was ending the show on “Shut up and Dance” which might be a personal bias, but I hate that god damn song. The show started strong, then ended like an average entry level variety show. I applaud each individual performer for bringing their extraordinary talents to such mundane material. Everyone had a smile, gave great face, danced phenomenally, and the singers were immaculate. But the production itself was not special.
