THE PLAY: Based on the popular children’s books about a girl loves the color pink, especially pink cupcakes.

 

THE PRODUCTION: In the title role, Tyandria Jackson is a crackerjack…full of bubbly energy! As her brother, Anthony Cosby garners most of the show’s laughs. The rest of the cast does fine, although it seems like Brent Deekens is in a different show. He’s more stylized than anyone else. The songs are fun and the voices good. Even with an enjoyable cast, this production seems to be trying too hard. The rambunctious staging by Leslie Owens-Harrigton is sometimes a frantic, over-directed and over-choreographed. Still, the young audience seemed rapt. The set by Terrie Powers has plenty of pastels and outlines to mimic book illustrations. Ruth Hedberg’s costumes are appropriately cheerful and BJ Wilkinson’s lights add pops of color. Running time: 55 minutes

 

THE POINT: A bright, cheery adaption for fans of the books.

 

3.5 out of 5 stars (3.5 / 5)

 

At Virginia Rep production at the Children’s Theatre at Willow Lawn thru 5/13
