theatre review THE MUSIC MAN, Scottsdale Musical Theatre Company, Nov 17

Matt Newhard, Lindsay Urbank and Cast
My review of the Scottsdale Musical Theatre Company's production of The Music Man at Talkin' Broadway can be found by clicking here.

"Community theatre productions of well-known musicals tend to be hit or miss. While the material and songs are well known by audience members, the cast and physical production elements generally lean toward the substandard. Often, cast members, especially the ensemble, aren't much more than window dressing, not knowing how to properly act in the background of scenes, and the sets, costumes and lighting can be minimal and unimaginative. So I'm happy to report that the Scottsdale Musical Theatre Company's recent production of The Music Man got just about everything right with winning leads, a fun ensemble, and a minimal yet effective design."
