Transcript 14 MONTROSE VOICE/DECEMBER 12. 1986 A Cute Little Miracle from Chocolate Bayou Review by Bill O'Rourke Montrose Voice Chocolate Bayou's Kringle's Window has a lot of excellent moments. I cried for joy about 10 times. First, there is a family that surely must be related to the one in You Can't Take It With You. The mother has had to send her alcoholic husband away and raise her children—two daughters and an adopted son—by herself. She is aided and abetted by the lodgers she takes in—four college students. Though they are all Ioveable loonies, perhaps the most eccentric is the daughter who refuses to speak again until her daddy comes home. So she writes everything down on paper or on her beloved com pu- ter. She's an expert hacker. Her little sister's schoolmates tell the young tyke that there is no Santa Claus. Director Leonard T. Wagner should have taken a firmer hand to this material. The play is good, but needs judicious cutting to become anything exceptional. □ Notes One large part of Christmas should be sharing with those less fortunate. The Houston Symphony Orchestra has a plan where your financial assistance can help high school and college students attend their performances. They have been able to help a record number of students that way this year. But it's still only about 100. Also, anytime from noon til 10:00 p.m., Monday-Fri day, you can take non- perishable food to the Comedy Workshop. They'll save it for distribution (left to right, standing) Sharon Bennett. Josh Goldbert, Katherin Hallowell: (seated) Allison Baker and Trent Tellespen in "Kringle's Window" by Mark Medoff She is heartbroken. In desperation, the mother promises to produce the real St. Nick the next night! Meanwhile, a strange, somewhat sinister woman intrudes into the little family scene. She looks and sounds like a European bag lady. She turns out to be more like Mary'Poppins. There is a very happy ending (several, actually) which proves that there is a real Santa Claus. It also explains why parents have to provide the gifts. Sharon Bennett as the mysterious visitor is fully rounded—seemingly dangerous yet ultimately miraculously beneficial. She is perfect in this role. Katherine Hallowell, as the mother, provides the fantasy with a firm basis of warm reality. There are six child actors in this play. performing as child actors too often do—giving us little gems of obviously rehearsed characterizations. They don't interact much with other people, but they make extraordinarily cute little islands. Much ofthe rest of the cast is making their Chocolate Bayou debut. The play was not well designed for this company but the company has been well redesigned for this play. The only real problem with this show is the writing. There are some wonderful moments but they do not always flow into each other. There is some emotional dead airspace. Occasionally, the play is weighted down with verbose philosophy not inherently germaine to the plot. If Mark Medoff wanted to write essays, some benevolent magazine publisher should have allowed it. through the Houston Food Bank. While Maestro Shimada has his Pops people warmed up for their Christmas specials, they'll be taking their show to Texas Children's Hospital next Tuesday, sponsored by HI_AP. Bravo! The Holiday Youth Fest, that yearly celebration of high school choirs, has begun. Check with the Museum of Fine Arts for the schedule of this fine, free fun. Cullen Center will have free music and hot roasted chestnuts at noon next Monday through Friday. Two Christmas extravaganzas open next Tuesday—Theater Under the Stars' Peter Pan (with Cathy Rigby) and Houston Ballet's The Nutcracker (with Janie Parker, Li Cunxin, et al)! A little jazz, a little swing, some country—it's Charlie Prause at Cleo's 21 through the end of the month. I believe in colorization of movies which were made helbre color was available to directors. But now I hear they are colorizing things which were purposefully made in black and whit.— like the Kansas scenes in The Wizard ofOz. The Bookstop in the old Alabama Theater, the Greenway III and the River Oaks Theater are sponsoring a petition drive against colorizing. To sign, drop hy any of them.
