2006 Year End Critic’s Choices

Productions That Kept The Spotlight Beaming
Bob Geopfert, The Record

Locally, C-R Productions at Cohoes Music Hall had a superior season, with several excellent shows. The energetic choreography and performances in Thoroughly Modern Millie, and the extremely complicated story and the difficult score and large cast of Ragtime made these two shows the very best theatrical experiences of 2006.

In terms of shows, C-R Productions had a stellar year. In addition to two productions mentioned below, Ain’t Misbehavin’, Kiss Me, Kate, and Thoroughly Modern Millie were both critical and popular successes. This company has set the bar high!

Top Ten Productions
#3 – La Cage Aux Folles
This ensemble piece was an eye-popping spectacle, from costumes to choreography. It featured a particularly fine performance by Jim Charles as a haughty and vulnerable female impersonator and nightclub star.
