THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

The Best of Everything)

"THEATER UNDER
THE STARS" . . . always
an intriguing thought . . . is
here again . . . as one hotel's
loss is another hotel's great
gain.
Nancy Gurwin opened in
"South Pacific" at Botsford
Inn . . . Grand River and
Eight Mile . . . and if the
other northwest hotel had
spies there, the owners or
operators are probably
banging their heads against
the wall for not grabbing it
when the opportunity was
available.
"South Pacific" . . . the
Rodgers and Hammerstein
and Joshua Logan Pulitzer
Prize winning musical .. .
opened in The Gardens at
John Anhut's Botsford Inn
. . . to the delight of so many.
The love of stage by its
cast of 30 is most evident
. . . on the patio with his-
toric Botsford Inn, aged
trees and wicker fence
serving as most effective
backgrounds ... The
show begins in daylight
and when darkness sets
in, the lighting effect is
excellently done with
wonderful spotlight
work on this very fine
cast.
"South Pacific" starring
Nancy Gurwin as Nellie
Forbush, Navy nurse, and
Lou Emmert as Emile de
Becque, French plantation
owner, is superb . . . so very
professional . . . As usual,
Nancy is her same wonder-
ful self . . . Lou has the deep
voice of Enzio Pinza, who
did the original part on
Broadway with Mary Mar-
tin.
Seating is in the grassed
Botsford Inn Garden .. .
with the patio stage about
18 inches above ground.
Queen Nancy sings, acts,
dances and does little bits of
comedy . . . all of which have
made her this area's pre-
mier feminine star.
The familiar music of
"South Pacific"
"Some Enchanted Eve-
ning," "There Is Nothing
Like A Dame," "Bali
Hal," "I'm Gonna Wash
That Man Right Outa My
Hair," "I'm In Love With
A Wonderful Guy,"
"Younger Than
Springtime," "Happy
Talk," "Honey Bun,"
"This Nearly Was Mine"
... is wonderful ... and
done with sounds of hap-
piness.
The cast feels what they
are doing . . . and Nancy's
biggest venture yet . . . does
a superb job on an American
classic.
The costuming is perfect
. . . by Nancy Brassert .. .
and set designing by Lee
Ayres so choice in its
simplicity.
Edgar Guest III does a
dual role in "South Pacific"
. . . He's the director . . . and
also very capably plays the
part of Seabee wheeler-
dealer Luther Billis.
As in the Broadway
and other "South
Pacific" shows, Bloody

Mary is somewhat of a
scene stealer . . . Judie
Cochill does an excellent
job.
Nancy and her cast put on
a most enjoyable show . . . It
is so important that
everyone feels his or her
part . . . to maintain suc-
cessful rapport between
personnel and audience.
The musical accompani-
ment does not go unnoticed
. . . especially dual pianos
played by Musical Director
Barbara Gowans and Asso-
ciate Musical Director
David Wilson . . . Eleanor
Struble is on bass and David
Minnich on percussion.
"South Pacific" by Nancy
Gurwin Productions . . . at
Botsford Inn . . . is per-
formed every Thursday and
Sunday evenings . . . with
cash bar available prior to
performances . . . This is not
dinner theater, so folks can
eat as they choose or dine at
Botsford Inn itself . . . Tic-
kets are only $10 for the
over two-hour show.
Nancy, by the way, will
bring the entire company
to 12-Oaks Mall, 7 p.m.
July 26 and 27, for 30
minutes of numbers from
the show.
Botsford Inn is the oldest
in Michigan still providing_
food and lodging . . . built in
1836 as a home . . . In 1841
it was converted into a
tavern and a stagecoach
stop . . . Botsford's property
is on the National Register
of Historic Places of U.S.
Dept. of Interior.
This is a showplace .. .
and quite natural that
"South Pacific" should be
appearing there . . . An-
tiques are galore . . . many
from Henry Ford's Fairlane
home and country estate .. .
Henry and Clara Ford
owned Botsford from 1924
to 1951 . . . and it still con-
tains many of their furnish-
ings . . . John Anhut then
acquired it . . . and has also
been its innkeeper.
"South Pacific" by Nancy
Gurwin and her excellent
cast and staff is true family
entertainment.
As Leonard Meldman
put it during intermis-
sion, "It's even better
than I thought it would
be." ... We didn't see
Leonard after the show
but his reaction must
have been much greater
following the first act ...
"South Pacific" by Nancy
Gurwin not only keeps
people glued to their
seats with joyful hand
clapping ... it also prom-
otes a nostalgic love.

To do "South Pacific"
poorly would be a tragedy
. . . and sinful . . . This has
happened . . . to shaking
heads of remembering
audiences.
However, Nancy Gurwin
and cast can be proud . .
their way is certainly the
right way.
