Around The Town Chicago - Highly Recommended

"...In reality this is almost a concert with his bio being presented along with his music. The concept by Harold Thau is not that unique, but the presentation directed by Linda Fortunato is easy to follow as we learn a great deal about the man and his music . There are five performers with Steven Romero Schaeffer ( who some might remember from TATC’s “Big River”) taking on the “identity” of Denver. He has the look and feel but never tried to imitate Denver. The other cast members are Sara Geist, a new comer to the Munster stage, Tommy Malouf ( recently he was here for “Million Dollar Quartet”, Andrew Mueller ( making his TATC debut) and Shannon McEldowney ( previously in “The Pajama Game”)."

"...Some of the best moments here are the ensemble numbers. These work because it takes several people to match the energy of one John Denver. Also, the harmonies and vocal arrangements of Jeff Waxman are spot-on, aided by the musical direction of William Underwood with musicians Malcolm Ruhl and Alison Tatum."
