Bert Osborne of the AJC has reviewed the world-premiere production of Stephen King and John Mellencamp’s Ghost Brothers of Darkland County at the Alliance Theatre. Giving the new musical a grade of A, he mentions, “Once you get inside the Alliance Theatre, take a moment to stand in awe of Todd Rosenthal’s spectacularly spooky scenic design.” It was not just the set he found impressive. He mentions the direction of Susan Booth as well as the solos by Jake La Botz,and he goes on to praise the choreography and the score. He writes, “the highlight among the production numbers (choreographed by Daniel Pelzig) is the pulsating Act I finale, “Tear This Cabin Down,” which essentially burns down the house.” Read the full review on the AJC website.
