Big In Winter Park
With Sara Jones
Musical direction by Chris Leavy
August 10, 2014
Theater Downtown, Orlando FL
If you missed this personal little show at Fringe, well, you had your second chance for a second pass. Impish Sara Jones and Orlando’s hardest working musical director Chris Leavy celebrate song and the entertainment industry in this one night encore. Sara moved down here as a child and has bounced around the scene and worked the parks all the while charming and soothing us with her wonderful voice. Tonight’s show was more auto biographical than musical, songs were limited but included “Good Morning Star Shine (who can forget that classic chorus”Gliddy gloop gloopy – Nibby nobby nooby -La la la lo lo”) the Sondheim hoofer “Another Hundred People” as well as a very touching “You’ve Got a Friend.” Between the songs we hear about her career including works at Theatre Downtown and her role as the critically acclaimed “Nun #7” in UCF’s recent “Sound of Music.” Like any really heartbreaking cabaret this is a gripping mixture of desperation and defiance.
