Critics and audiences all loved the Encores! revival of Frank Loesser's "Where's Charley?"

Critics and audiences all loved the Encores! revival of Frank Loesser's "Where's Charley?"

Michael Sommers of New Jersey Newsroom:
"Prettily dressed in period pastels by Ann Hould-Ward, the 23-member ensemble brings fresh voices and high spirits to the music. One and all, the leading players are a delightful group.

Charley2031811_optEffortlessly assuming Bolger’s role is Rob McClure, a bright-eyed fellow who once played Charley in his hometown New Milford’s high school production of the musical. Whether wooing Lauren Worsham’s perky Amy in the upbeat “Make a Miracle” duet or frantically tearing across the stage in voluminous petticoats and a sausage-curl wig as Charley’s supposed auntie, the cheerful McClure at all times is an expert, engaging song-and-dance man who makes everything look easy and natural."

Matt Windman of AM NEW YORK:
..."it remains a cute show with much physical comedy and a handful of good songs that display Loesser’s genius. In addition to the perennial favorite “Once in Love with Amy,” “Make a Miracle,” a duet for Charley and his gal pal, is terrifically funny and romantic.

John Doyle, who is best known for his unconventional actor-musician stagings of Stephen Sondheim’s “Sweeney Todd” and “Company,” would appear to be an odd, perhaps even inappropriate, choice for this lowbrow farce. He has nevertheless provided a simple, charming and truly enjoyable staging of this rarely seen musical with a mostly young and unknown cast.

Robert McClure, a replacement cast member of “Avenue Q,” is delightfully silly as Charley, the role originated by Ray Bolger, and handles the physical demands of cross-dressing with aplomb. He is also a hoot during the show’s classic song “Once in Love with Amy,” conducting a soft shoe dance and leading a sing-a-long reprise with the audience. McClure is joined by Lauren Worsham, Jill Paice and Sebastian Arcelus. The adult roles are handled gracefully by Broadway veterans Howard McGillin and Rebecca Luker."
