Review: The Cast and Crew of The John W. Engeman Theater's THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL Can “Hold Their Heads Even Higher” with Their Stunning Production.

What did our critic think of THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL at John W. Engeman Theater At Northport? I must admit I was a little hesitant in seeing The Scarlet Pimpernel because I was starting to believe Frank Wildhorn was a one-hit wonder on Broadway. That one hit wonder of course being Jekyll & Hyde, a great musical with a fantastic score despite what the critics said. His latest productions that I've seen (Wonderland, Bonnie and Clyde) just didn't measure up.

Review: THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL at Palm Canyon Theatre

What did our critic think of THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL at Palm Canyon Theatre? Palm Canyon Theatre has taken some risks this season by offering a season of lesser-known shows, but their decision seems to be paying off. I know that my first-ever viewing of Titanic will last with me a long time, and their current production, The Scarlet Pimpernel, stacks up very close. It is definitely worth seeing - and especially hearing. The voices of the three leads would be comfortable in any concert hall in the world, and hearing them in PCT's relatively small auditorium is a rare treat.

BWW Feature: Live Theatre Triumphantly Returns to the SCERA with THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL

The SCERA realized it would be able to comply with state and local guidelines, keeping audiences safe while also providing them the live theatrical experience they've been unable to indulge in for several months. And after the dearth of opportunities to attend a performance in person, it was electrifying to hear live singing again and express appreciation communally through applause. The SCERA produces community theatre at its best, and THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL is no exception, providing an enjoyable evening out with impressive talent and production values.

Before the arrival of Zorro, Iron Man, Superman and Batman, there was the Scarlet Pimpernel. All are heroes with dual lives. They may appear unassuming and some may be labeled as the frivolous rich, but hidden under these unassuming covers are stars that specialize in heroism.
