I’m not scared
Emotions surge as the story focuses on the intersecting lives of a wealthy white mother Rachel Oliveros Catalano left temporarily in charge of her family; an African American washerwoman Jennifer Talton and ragtime piano player Dony Wright who become part of the household; and a Latvian Jewish immigrant Wyn Moreno with whom the family keeps crossing paths. Even when circumstances are at their bleakest, hopeful citizens try to dream America forward, finding unity in diversity and leaving us with a final image of what the nation could and should be.
This is powerfully inspiring stuff. Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan collaborated on the script for this adaptation, with Brooks writing more songs — mimicking Jewish folk music and old-time Broadway — to accompany the most memorable ones in his movie. Set in , the story focuses on Max Bialystock Richardson Jones , a Broadway producer with an anti-Midas touch, and Leo Bloom Christopher Jewell Valentin , a timid accountant hired to sift through the books.

Happening upon a bookkeeping discrepancy, Bloom innocently theorizes that a flop could reap bigger, if illicit, profits than could a legitimate hit. Musicians are housed on a balcony. There are seats for just 47 theatergoers. Drawers open to reveal additional furnishings and, magically, an arm will sometimes reach through to hand a prop to an actor onstage.
To make the cast seem bigger than it is, director Michael Matthews has the chorus guys contribute to the numbers of women needed, lending the production a playful sense of gender-fluidness.
The big problem, though, is that Matthews and his actors have little aptitude for the Brooks style of comedy. Instead of full-body, explosive-emotion gags, we get merely a wide-eyed Bloom and a loud Bialystock, both racing through the funny business although Jones does deliver some effectively bull-charging Bialystock moments. This is a story about bad taste, told with bad taste, but what makes it funny is a sense of wry subversion.
Too bad, because some wry subversion would be welcome right now. America is experiencing an overload of bad taste, coming from all sides. Where: Chance Theater, E. La Palma Ave. Thursdays, 8 p. Fridays, 3 and 8 p. Saturdays, 3 p.
