Call Me Madam - Upstairs At The Gatehouse

having seen white christmas on broadway last year, this show makes w.c. look like it is terribly modern - or maybe it was the staging
thom southerland needs to tell his ensemble to a) project because only the leads are miked and if you want to express emotion to the audience do so, dont just gurn at them!
the book is ultimately what lets this show down, but even so i would still recommend this limited run to anyone who has a chance to see it because of the terrific performance given by beverly klein who is amazing despite the fact that the material is just about as thin as it could possibly be

I think he might have gone off to do a film in Eastern Europe! Chris Love, howewer, plays the part of Kenneth superbly though. I loved this show, even if some of the cast are a bit 'young'. What they lack in years, they make up for in enthusiasm amd are a delight to watch!

Chris Love is excellent as Kenneth Gibson. The rest of the supporting cast look as though Beverley Klein has invited her grandchildren round to tea, but they work darned hard and some of the choreography is brilliant in such a small space. The whole show's miked by the way, heaven knows why because the theatre's the size of my living room and Klein could, in most circumstances, fill a large hall without any assistance.
The boys playing the politicans are the most inconguous, particularly as you have to be 25 to be elected to Congress, and 30 to be a Senator.
But why let accuracy spoil a good show.
