Marquee Theater Company is still an evolving troupe. but it’s a shame that this production of Thoroughly Modern Millie isn’t Carbonell Award eligible – many elements would have given other companies a run for their money at next winter’s deliberations.
Marquee Theater Company’s production of Jason Robert Brown’s Songs For A New World slices open the studied flat affect of the “Whatever” generation to expose inner lives as vibrant, complex and tumultuous as that of any group before them.
35MM and this production require some effort from the audience to meet it more than halfway. It is, as they say, not for everyone’s taste. But it does represent an intriguing example of the current effort by young theater artists to find new ways to create their own brand of musical theater that speaks to them. In that, Evening Star’s 35MM is worth checking out.
