Spitfire Grill, PCPA Theaterfest

Highlights from my production of Spitfire Grill at PCPA Theaterfest, featuring Michael Jenkinson, Lexi Fridell, Phoebe Moyer, Kiera O’Neil, Colum Parke Morgan & Bree Murphy. “The Spitfire Grill” is a tender and moving work of art – and a bold offering by the PCPA that should not be missed.” – Brad Memberto, Santa Maria Times

Reviews

As she did with last year’s Urinetown The Musical, Rachelle proves herself a director of vision and imagination, capable of taking material that’s been done again and again and making it seem fresh and new…

– Steven Stanley, Stage Scene LA

The setting is so real and the performances, under Valerie Rachelle’s direction, are so believable that this rather fantastic story soon seems entirely plausible…

– Daryl Miller, L.A. Times

Crisp, quick and agile.  I was still trying to undo the smile plastered on my face as I drove home.  Choreographer Valerie Rachelle created perpetual motion…a stunning ensemble, with impeccable timing and seamless interactions…

Performance Riverside’s production of “My Fair Lady”…extraordinary would be a fitting description. The whole package glowed with a polish. Performance Riverside gave an absolutely, positively, stop-at-nothing, fabulous show.

“Director Valerie Rachelle — whose crisp choreography in this limited dance show left me wanting more — “

– Donald Munro, The Fresno Bee

Stage director Valerie Rachelle…gave the show Broadway polish, leaving no detail unaddressed.

– Robert Coleman, Salt Lake Tribune

The play as a whole was visually beautiful…The dancing was top-notch and there was much of it.  (The production) brought out everything that can be enjoyed about this classic musical and more.

– Michelle Garrett, Deseret News

Come to be treated to the best singing you will hear anywhere, but come you must. Performance Riverside’s “Into the Woods” ranks at the top of any performance list, anywhere.

Director-choreographer Valerie Rachelle makes a stellar Glendale Centre Theatre debut.  Having already impressed this reviewer, director-choreographer Rachelle now gets to show Glendale Centre Theatre regulars, her mastery at directing and choreographing in-the-round.
