BWW CD Reviews: MEET JOHN DOE (Original Studio Cast Album) Swings With Entertaining Authenticity

Site Logo

Since it played at the Goodspeed Opera House in Connecticut last fall, in a developmental production with a largely different cast, Gerle and Sugarman have added four new songs, rewritten or removed several others, and changed characters and scenes. The music is pleasantly melodic and occasionally brash, and the story is simple but affecting. The plot concerns Ann Mitchell Heidi Blickenstaff , a reporter desperately trying to save her job. So she invents a character, John Doe, who promises to commit suicide on Christmas Eve to protest the condition of "the common man.

Norton Patrick Ryan Sullivan have to come up with a flesh and blood Doe. They find him in the person of James Willoughby James Moye , a rundown and homeless former baseball player.

The fictional Doe fronts "plain-speaking" columns written by Mitchell that preach charity and paint a portrait of America as a land where neighbors take care of neighbors. He becomes a national figure and "John Doe Clubs" spread across the country. That's a tempting opportunity for the wealthy publisher and his fat cat friends, who decide to use Doe to take over the government.

While Capra was famously unable to come up with an ending for his film that he found satisfying, Schaeffer and the writers devised a new finale that enhances its impact. With her girlish laugh, Blickenstaff doesn't always seem the hard-bitten reporter, a female making her way in a man's world.

However, she energetically throws herself into the big tunes, such as the peppy "I'm Your Man," where Mitchell begs for her job. Indeed, she manages to make such lyrics as, "You need someone who crosses her legs and her tees," sound less banal than they are. His strong, clear voice soars in the inspirational anthem "Perfect Days," expressing the character's yearning to return to baseball. In "Get the Picture," Blickenstaff and Moye go back and forth in a song broken by dialogue; his portions are light and jazzy, while hers are more bluesy.

The song nicely captures some of the feel of cinematic repartee and rapid-fire patter. The idea that Doe may be seen as a vaguely religious figure is also underscored in "Thank You," a moving nine-part a cappella number with definite hymn-like overtones, including a "thank you" that sounds an awful lot like an "amen" at the conclusion. Sullivan isn't much of a singer, and his limited range and warbling vibrato are not up to the rigors of the ambitious publisher's songs.

However, a standout in the supporting cast is Joel Blum, who is colorfully eccentric as Colonel, a hobo who is Willoughby's buddy. Derek McLane's dark gray set, featuring industrial girders and massive gears put the cast smack in the middle of a giant printing press, reminding us that this is a story of media manipulation, while also nicely serving as the Brooklyn Bridge. Alejo Vietti's black, white, and gray costumes add to the period ambiance.

Karma Camp's "musical staging" is strictly meat-and-potatoes, in line with the traditional ambiance of the show, although the musician, piece orchestra is perched above the stage, rather than in the pit, on a span also populated by actors.

With Schaeffer's slight edginess and a new ending, Meet John Doe may no longer be the old brand of Capra-Corn; but it's a show the old master would certainly recognize.

“I’m Your Man” (show version) – PDF

Broadway Records' recording captures the flashy, toe-tapping Big Band score in all of its glory and features some of modern musical theatre's favorite voices, namely Robert Cuccioli , Andrew Keenan-Bolger , and Heidi Blickenstaff. The plot centers on an ambitious reporter, Ann Mitchel l, who is fired from her newspaper job during the Great Depression. She pens a prank letter to her own column from a "John Doe" who threatens to commit suicide by jumping off the Brooklyn Bridge on Christmas Eve. He becomes a citywide sensation, and Ann hires an out-of-work baseball pitcher, John Willoughby, to play John Doe.

The Complete Book of s Broadway Musicals. Dan Dietz.

A promising American musical isn't born every minute. Heck, whole years go by without anything approximating the arrival of a melodious blessed event… Treated to a slick, skillful staging by Eric Schaeffer, [ Meet John Doe ] is a rewarding platform for a pair of talented young songwriters and a knockout of a leading lady named Heidi Blickenstaff… Composer Andrew Gerle and lyricist Eddie Sugarman, who also collaborated on the show's book, conjure in this populist musical fable a Depression-era America as desperate for a decent public man as it is for a buck… the score, ably served by Jonathan Tunick's orchestrations — a piece band sits on a bridge over the stage — is filled with clever lyrics and bright and supple melodies… On the nervy shoulders of Ann, the plot must be carried, and Blickenstaff is more than up to it. She's a dynamite successor to the movie's Barbara Stanwyck: It's a star performance, in fact. There's an effortless kind of kick to Blickenstaff's readings of Ann's sharp-elbowed lines. And she can sing, to boot… Ford's, too, deserves applause for taking a chance on this material.
