Director Scott Ford has assembled a fantastic cast of Lyric favorites and newcomers. In the latter category, Jaclyn Juola as Reno is a wonderful addition to the #TCTheater scene and I look forward to seeing more of her. She's brash and funny with great vocal control and a commanding stage presence. Familiar face Ty Hudson is a charmer as Billy Crocker, and another newcomer, Elizabeth Cassidy (a recent graduate from my alma mater with a double major in math and theater - my kinda girl!) is de-lovely as Hope. Kyler Chase is hysterical as Lord Evelyn, stealing scenes and working every comedic moment. Robert Zalazar is a natural as gangster Moonface Martin; Rachel Hudson is a hoot as fellow gangster Erma (and if she were a little blonder, could be mistaken for Kristin Chenowith); and Jessica Scott is expressive and funny as Hope's mother, despite being too young for the role (it saddens me to see actors with fake silver in their hair, especially women, because I know it means taking another role away from a woman over 40). The entire ensemble is wonderful, especially the adorable sailor quartet (James Ehlenz, Armando Ronconi, Alex Johnson, and Josh Palmquist).
