Marie Antoinette: The Color of Flesh

When: June 25-July 11 2009

The high level of the talent in community theatre in HRM is a constant source of amazement and pleasure to me. While amateur productions with large casts usually offer a mixed-bag of professionalism, it seems that shows with three characters or less always manage to find actors of a very high caliber. That is certainly the case with TAG’s production of Marie Antoinette: The Color of Flesh. Stuart Hiseler as the rakish and radical Count Alexis, Valerie MacKenzie as the naïve young Queen (who matures throughout the play) and Vanessa Walton-Bone as the ambitious but ultimately loyal portrait painter all give lively and memorable performances. Although the weighty speeches about politics and the oppressive summer temperature of the Pond Playhouse both serve to weigh down the second act, the quality of the acting definitely makes this play worth a look.---Kate Watson
