"Un di felice. . ."
Glenn Seven Allen
As this show is technically a "workshop" it is not available for review, at the request of the Berkshire Theatre Group.
However, this is one of the best shows the company has offered for this season and so - with only three performances to go of its four public presentations - it must be noted and audiences must be encouraged to attend. If there are any seats available - buy one.
Three marvelous talents appear on the Unicorn stage in this remarkable re-telling of the story of "The Lady of the Camellias. Glenn Seven Allen plays and sings the role of Alfredo Germont. His is a talent that will go on for a long , long while. A beautiful man with a beautiful voice.
Jamilla Manning-White is the Violetta/Marguerite Gautier of the tale. This is a singing actress who can seemingly do anything. Her acting is superb and her absolutely lovely voice carries her through the most difficult passages of music Giuseppe Verdi ever wrote.
Actor Seth Bodie can seemingly play anybody convincingly.
These three, under the fascinating and realistic direction of Dustin Wills, on one of the best sets and with the use of excellent projections, make your one-act evening a bit of perfection in the Berkshire summer.
Try not to miss it.
