    BWW Reviews: The Engeman 'Produces' a Sensational PRODUCERSBWW Reviews: The Engeman 'Produces' a Sensational PRODUCERS
    by Brian Rivera - Jun 8, 2015

Each and every person onstage had a story to tell, and not just some façade to put on: a worry I typically have when viewing a comedic musical. Even each member of the ensemble had fantastic individuality and characterization that it makes one wonder whether an ensemble needs to necessarily “blend together” – which, in fact, is quite difficult not to do when the show decks out its actors in outrageous costumes that make Betsy Johnson and Alexander McQueen look (I won't be forgetting you, anytime soon, Sausage Dress…). Though, it's the joint effort between the lead players and supporting players that create magic on that stage, and this cast did just that. (more...)
