Probably the largest cast I've seen on stage of a BCT production, where the usual seems to be 1 to 3 actors. The story retells the true tale of Louis de Rougemont, an adventurer and Robinson Crusoe wannabe, who is maybe not everything he seems. Dwayne Blackaller in the title role has no problem holding your attention. He acts, dances, sings, walk stilts and performs 'acrobatics.' He is great in this. We loved Nylda Mark in a previous BCT production, and she is utilized to maximum effect, playing a variety of supporting roles. Stitch Marker is a complete scene stealer, especially when acting as Rougemont's faithful dog. The stage set is beautiful, and I loved the live music and sound effects in this rollicking tale. This production is suitable for family viewing (something not true for most BCT plays) so we grabbed the opportunity to treat the family to an evening of live theater.
