Bob Goepfert Reviews "Johnny Baseball"

“Johnny Baseball” playing at the Nikos Theatre of the Williamstown Theatre Festival is both a musical about baseball and an interracial love story. The two are connected through the racism of baseball, specifically the Boston Red Sox, who were one of the last team in major league baseball to sign a black ballplayer.

If you only know of the George Bernard Shaw play “Pygmallion” as the source material for the musical “My Fair Lady,” you really don’t know the work.  “Pygmailion” is a biting, funny social satire about women’s rights and class distinctions.

It is hard to think of any musical with a better score than “Anything Goes.” It’s just as difficult to think of a cast who might perform those numbers better than those in the national tour playing at Proctors through Sunday.

This revival, which originated at Roundabout Theatre in New York City, is a happy musical that entertains and delights with great Cole Porter masterpieces. It opens with “I Get a Kick Out Of You” and follows with classics like “Easy to Love,” “Friendship,” “It’s De-Lovely” and “All Through the Night.”
