What I liked

What I didn't like

My overall impression

An exquisite melding of drama, dance, movement, costume and live music, this performance piece takes David O. Selznick’s search for the right actress to play Scarlett O’Hara into moments I don’t think the legendary producer could ever have thought of. A seamless cast under Kick Boom Theater leader John Wuchte’s inventive direction certainly help, but this show really is Wuchte’s awe-inspiring conception. It’s been years since I’ve seen a costume change catapult a production into the next level—Scarlett’s infamous red dress here is beyond description. Astounding in every aspect.
