BWW Reviews: Troubies' A CHRISTMAS WESTSIDE STORY Rocks the Falcon
A Christmas Westside Story
written & directed by Matt Walker
The Troubies @ the Falcon
through January 15
Also on hand in this fantabulous cast are Beth Kennedy, accomplishing spectacularly funny physical feats as always, as little brother Randy - she has a great Christmas present for Rick Batalla as Old Man to help him stop improvisizing. Everyone is sensational with Batalla the primo example of milking every joke for what it's worth. Eric Heinly on drums serves splendidly as musical director. The set (Matt Jespersen) - with brickwall background for the playground, and wintry costumes (Naomi Yoshida) are just great. Choreography by Molly Alvarez rocks, especially in "America" and "Triple Dog Dare" to the strains of "Play It Cool". Last but not least, there's Matt Walker. It is because of this man's brilliance as director and artistic director of the Troubadour Theater Company that productions like A Christmas Westside Story exceed expectations.
