Lerner & Loewe

by Terrance Mc Arthur



The Lerner & Loewe Paint Your Wagon, with most of its 1951 plumage intact, is onstage at Roger Rocka’s Dinner Theatre. The Good Company Players’ production is filled with energy and life, with all the texture and deft touches you would expect from Dan Pessano’s direction. Tough goldminers look longingly at pictures and letters from loved ones during the mournful “They Call the Wind Maria (pronounced Mariah, like Carey).” One man’s shakes from being near Jennifer (Alyssa Gaynor), the only female in the camp, reach near-weight-reducing intensity. A lively dance number during the curtain call keeps the audience clapping in time. Pessano’s name on a show is a good indication of a quality production.
