I saw Mickey And The Magical Map for the first time yesterday. All reviews aside, there was one thing that jumped out at me while I was watching the show. This glaring occurrance may not be visible to most of the guests in the mid-to-back areas of the theater BUT it was VERY obvious to me...and the 3 girls sitting in the row in front of me. This concern is...that a few of the "generic" dancers in the show appear first as singers/dancers, then disappear to change into Character Costumes and then appear onstage as those characters! Both incarnations feature their full face (Flynn Rider and Mulan were the most obvious). When the show started, I recognized one of the taller singers/dancers as one of the "Mad Hatters" from the Mad Tea Party at DCA. He's very talented and has a very recognizeable face. What I wasn't prepared for was, after the inital opening number from Magical Map, he disappeared for a few minutes only to reemerge as Flynn Ryder for the princess medley. This happened with Mulan as well and both actors were back on stage (as generic dancers/singers) for the show finale. What brought this to my attention were the 3 girls in front of me. THEY noticed that it was the same people and they started calling out "Fake!" These girls were about 10 and we were 5 -6 rows from the front. To my knowledge, there have never been times where the stage actors were so obviously doing double-duty. Especially when it came to doing a "face" character. It would be different if these actors had disappeared and then reemerged donning Pluto, Donald, or Mickey costumes as they would be completely covered up and the audience would never be any wiser because of it. But "face" characters? Am I grousing about nothing???
No announcement yet.
