The key to the success of this show is a warm and effervescent Maria, and Abigail Allwein totally fills the bill. Her free-spirited Maria is endearing and her delivery of some of the most memorable songs from the show, such as “The Sound of Music,” and “My Favorite Things,” is sheer perfection.
Allwein is throughly charming and carries herself with that period flair and energy that is lacking in most productions. She also carries the ensemble musical numbers with her beautiful soprano voice, and lights up the stage with every entrance.
Abigail Grace Allwein, who is a superb Marian, has a delightful singing voice, a charming disposition, and phenomenal stage presence.
Abigail Allwein is a welcomed new addition to the Actors’ Summit company. She sings well, and acts well. This poignant vignette is a showcase for her acting talents.
The sexy and attractive Allwein is true to type as the Turkey Rep trying to swing a deal.
If you enjoyed “The Rock and The Rabbi,” you will also like the new musical “David,” by the same team of actors and musicians. In fact, this play presented in one act, has what I would consider better music than the former, thanks in large part to the violin work of Abigail Grace Allwein.
