Musical Sensation A CHORUS LINE is a NCT Hit

Professional Theatre September 16, 2013 at 9:58 pm 0 comments

When I heard New Candlelight Theatre was doing A CHORUS LINE, I started mentally counting down the days (or months, to be more accurate, since it was announced last season). NCT has proven itself in the last few years as a top venue for Broadway musicals in The First State, […]

DRIVING MISS DAISY An Endearing, Meaningful Journey at Arden’s New Candlelight Theatre

Professional Theatre June 14, 2013 at 6:18 pm 0 comments

Odd-couple type relationships always make for an engaging show premise, especially when the two steadfast characters are portrayed with such chemistry and buoyancy.  The volley of wits between an unlikely pair: the Southern, white, Jewish Miss Daisy Werthan, (played by Susan Dewey), and her enthusiastic yet uneducated African American chauffeur, […]

Omigod — It’s LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL at NCT

Professional Theatre April 10, 2013 at 9:29 pm 0 comments

LEGALLY BLONDE, New Candlelight Theatre’s spring offering, is one of those shows that might sound less great than it really is. The musical is based on the popular 2001 film starring Reese Witherspoon (which is based on the novel by Amanda Brown). Like the film, the musical is fun and […]

THE PRODUCERS Score a Hit at New Candlelight

Professional Theatre February 3, 2013 at 1:37 pm 0 comments

There’s a reason Mel Brooks gets away with even the most crass, offensive-in-any-other-context material in his work: he has mastered the art of satire. In THE PRODUCERS, the first show of the 2013 season for New Candlelight Theater in Arden, Delaware, he’s created a satire about satire that’s created completely […]

WEDDING SINGER Swings and Sings at New Candlelight

Around the Region April 2, 2012 at 8:33 pm 0 comments

Producing Director Chris Alberts is a savvy arbiter of talent. When he requires a more classic Broadway musical feel, he calls choreographer Sonny Leo. If the genre is more over the top or down and dirty hell-bent, unrelenting rock n’ roll, it’s Dann Dunn. I referred to Aisle Say’s notes […]

Magnificent MISS SAIGON at New Candlelight

Around the Region January 29, 2012 at 8:25 pm 0 comments

Determination will get you through this, is not the best fortune to get before reviewing a show I’ve always wanted to see at a theater I’ve never been to before. The evening started out well. Even though it took about two hours to reach the New Candlelight Theatre through 95 […]

AISLE SAY: A VERY CANDLELIGHT CHRISTMAS at NCT

Around the Region November 15, 2011 at 9:26 pm 0 comments

Dear sister Liz and I introduced ourselves to our table mates. My first question is always… “Have you been to Candlelight before?” In three years of attending opening weekends we’ve sat with only one couple who were returning vets. A promising sign. The couple was from Downingtown. That’s a hike. […]

There’s No Lack of Heart in NCT’s DAMN YANKEES

Calling all baseball fans! OK, Gang, what do you call a cast that’s super talented? First base! And when you have kicky, lively choreography? Second base! And enough energy to go around? Third base! Bunch ‘em up! What do we have? A home run! I’m not even into baseball, but […]

AISLE SAY: ANNIE Leaves Us Orphaned

Around the Region August 7, 2011 at 8:56 pm 0 comments

Over the past 2 seasons New Candlelight Theatre had been in a groove like the Phillies pitching staff. Their Doc Halladay was “Cats” and “Footloose”; Cliff Lee was “Oklahoma” and “Joseph” and Cole Hamels was “Little Shop” and “Evita”. ANNIE was a minor league choice. True, the tunes ‘Tomorrow’ and […]

Readers, I had way too much fun on opening night and it isn’t right that I should have it all without sharing. Give it up for one night of light entertainment just over the border between PA and DE at the New Candlelight (Dinner) Theatre in Arden, DE… remember I […]

AISLE SAY…HE SAID: First DE Production of CATS a Feline Delicacy

Around the Region February 15, 2011 at 9:20 pm 0 comments

Poetry-wise, I’ll say Aisle Say is strictly a simple iambic pentameter type of fellow; “listening to the loons croon under the moon in June”, that type of thing. Pick up a book of poetry? There are reruns of ‘Jersey Shore’ to titillate my senses, thank you very much.  T.S. Eliot […]

Ready, Get Set, GO! NOW! He who hesitates… Trust me when I tell you… I’m going to begin gushing now… I can’t believe how fantastic this show, CATS, was/is at the New Candlelight Theatre in Ardentown, DE. If I were giving out grades (I am a veteran “retired” teacher), they’d […]

AISLE SAY: WIZARD OF OZ Takes the Stage at New Candlelight

When Dorothy Gale entered Oz, Judy Garland entered immortality. The movie has been seen by almost every child who has seen a movie. Judy will live forever in our hearts. ‘Rainbow’ is the most popular song ever; a mystical, lyrical and melodic story of a child’s spiritual passage from adolescence […]
