Downtown Cabaret Theatre, CT

This show deserves Another Day

“It’s too bad that Another Day in Paradise has visited Downtown Cabaret for such a brief stay. We can only hope that this enchanting mini-musical will surface at another neighboring venue in the near future.”

“Another Day in Paradise is the ironic title which describes the dilemma of one woman (and perhaps every modern woman). It follows her saga through career, marriage and motherhood, attempting to juggle all three and using song and dialogue to tell the story. Three gifted performers—Tracey Marble, Laurie Sondermeyer, and Trisha Turiano—all play the role of this embattled woman, serving at times as alter egos. All three are absolute pros, with body language, voices, and characterizations right on target.“

“This is not new material. It is, in fact, Everywoman’s story. But Randazzo and company package it beautifully. Director Gary John La Rosa and musical director Phil Hall manage a brisk pace, keeping the cast moving smoothly and interweaving solos, duets, and trios with sharp dialogue. There is never a lag, never a moment of boredom for the audience.”

"Paradise would undoubtedly work better in a supper club setting or intimate theater, an appearance which one hopes will be forthcoming in the near future.”
