THEATER REVIEW
'Respect, A Musical Celebration of Women'
By Marianne Regan


Because of its enthusiastic reception, "Respect, A Musical Celebration of Women," returned to San Diego's Lyceum Theater on July 11 as it continues to draw baby-boomers and hip oldsters who enjoy this fast-paced romp through decades of musical styles. The extended run ends Aug. 26.

Written by Dorothy Marcic and based on her book, "Respect: Women and Popular Music," the staged play uses music from dozens of popular songs to move the action along. The loose storyline follows the evolution of women from being taken cared of, as in Gershwin's "Someone to Watch Over Me," to empowerment of their own abilities, as in Helen Reddy's hit, "I am Woman."

The show has now played all over the U.S., including Boston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Ft. Lauderdale, Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, West Palm Beach, Phoenix, Tampa, Green Bay, Baltimore and Minneapolis, as well as internationally in various cities in Australia.

The excellent San Diego cast includes Lisa H. Payton, Kelsey Venter and Nancy Snow Carr, all veteran performers of the stage and musical theater. The play features San Diego regular Leigh Scarritt, who narrates the action and gently guides the audience through the turbulent eras of women's issues. Hysterical highlights include Venter's emotional rendition of "It Must Be Him" and the ensemble's timely take on Brittany Spears' "Oops! I Did It Again."

This is definitely "theater-lite" but it's fun and it is family–friendly. You can bring your visiting relatives and friends who may not be savvy theatergoers and be assured of an enjoyable evening. The singing is excellent, the choreography is decent if not dazzling and the 72 pop/rock songs are well known by all. Indeed, the audience is encouraged to sing along with the cast throughout the show and at the end, everyone is clapping and belting out Aretha Franklin's, "R.E.S.P.E.C.T" while cast members come off stage and mingle.

"Respect" will run through Sept. 9, 2012 at the Lyceum Theatre, 79 Horton Plaza, San Diego. Performances are Wednesdays at 2 and 7 p.m., Thursdays and Fridays at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 2 and 8 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are $45 to $55 and available at the Lyceum Theatre Box Office at (619) 544-1000. Group discounts are available for groups of 12 or more by calling (888) 264-1788.

San Diego Reader

Respect: A Musical Celebration of Women at the Lyceum
Jeff Smith, April 29, 2012

About half way into Dorothy Marcic's revue, a shiny black rotary phone sits on a chair center-stage. Kelsey Venter kneels before it transfixed. When it doesn't ring, she grows antsy and begins singing the Vikki Carr hit "It Must Be Him."

The phone still doesn't ring, so she really sings: "Let it please be him, oh dear God/It MUST be him, or I shall die/Or I SHALL DIE." Wrong number, more silence, and Venter stark raving over the top mad belts out the lyrics like the world's loudest suicide note.

Venter's a riot. She portrays a pre-social media event that could take on epic proportions, back when: awaiting THE CALL. The set piece also stands out because it's one of the few times Respect pulls off the speedway and does a complete number. More often than not the revue powers through fragments of 50 popular women's songs, which flash past like road signs.

Marcic wrote Respect: Woman and Popular Music, which analyzes the lyrics of popular songs in the 20th century and identifies women's evolving status. The musical came from the book. A narrator (based on Marcic) tells the story of the women in her family through the songs they sang.

These are fairly predictable. What's different: Respect calls careful attention to the lyrics - and de-codes them, showing how the familiar words underline values women were expected to embrace ("Stand By Your Man" and "I Will Follow Him" urge traditional roles, as does "Bend Me, Shape Me"). As the show, and the century, progresses, the coding shifts from dependence on a man to the independence of "These Boots Are Made," "You Don't Own Me," and "I Will Survive."

The brief excerpts frustrate because the four woman cast could belt them with brass and pizazz. When they finally have a spotlit number, they shine.

Leigh Scarritt (the Narrator) nails "Piece of My Heart," "Beautiful," and the tranquil "In My Daugher's Eyes." Nancy Snow Carr's "Whatever Lola Wants" is a kick, and her imitations of Patsy and Marilyn Monroe ("Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" - talk about encoding!!) are spot on. Venter excels throughout, as does Lisa H. Payton, whose voice has an extra gear. Just when you think she's maxing out, she kicks it up - with "God Bless the Child" and "Ain't Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around."

Although the videos, projected on three circles, often lack sharpness, the sound design is tops, as is Cris O'Bryon's four-piece band, with Jim Mooney blazing on guitar.

Lyceum Theatre, 79 Horton Plaza, downtown, playing through June 24.

Respect: A Musical Journey of Women - Pure Entertainment with a Social Focus
Feel-good adaptation uses music lyrics to map women's movement

Cuauhtémoc Kish | Theater Review

"Respect: A Musical Journey of Women," currently playing at the Lyceum Stage Theatre through June 24, depicts the road women have walked for the past 100 years through song and photography.

The basis for this 60-plus songfest is Dorothy Marcic's book "Respect: Women and Popular Music," the result of nine years of research and development that sprang from Marcic's leadership seminars. The author realized popular music chronicled the story of women in the 20th century, and this realization has morphed into the feel-good production featuring four talented singers: Leigh Scarritt, Lisa H. Payton, Nancy Snow Carr and Kelsey Venter.

The show uses irony, humor and some barefaced truth to inform the audience that we all have come a long way in the last century: from doormat to rebel and powerless to powerful. This hard-working quartet vocalizes and harmonizes about the past, while hoping for a better future.

Marcic never demands a particular path for women; she offers instead options and wide-ranging opportunities, underscoring the fact that it is not simply a choice between having a job outside the home or being a full-time mom. Women can choose to have both, either or neither.

This easy going musical reminds audiences that women may not have had their best days when the Billie Holiday song "My Man" was popular in the 1950s, but as women's roles developed, so did songs' lyrics.

As the show begins, you might find yourself squirming uncomfortably when Venter sings the praises of "Johnny Angel" and Carr sings "I Fall to Pieces," reminding everyone that women considered themselves less without a man. By the time we get to the second act, however, independence makes an strong appearance as Payton sings with confidence on songs including "God Bless the Child," and "'Taint Nobody's Business If I Do," among others.

The show offers up hilarious projected images on three screens above the stage, reminding us that Coco Chanel helped liberate women from their corsets, while Betty Boop did the cause no favors by begging her man to love her, "and nobody else." This entertaining pictography includes an appearance by Rosa Parks, as well as Princess Diana and Annette Funicello, among others.

Though all four talented singers have their individual moments in the spotlight, the group harmonies, as well as some spiffy choreography by Carmela Guiteras Mayo, are especially entertaining, including "You Don't Own Me" and the Tammy Wynette hit, "Stand By Your Man."

Payton hits some great notes in "I Will Survive," while Venter makes us laugh out loud in "It Must Be Him." Carr shows her versatility with "Won't You Come Home, Bill Bailey," while Scarritt reminds us of her huge talent on the poignant numbers "Beautiful" and "In My Daughter's Eyes."

"Respect" does more than open the conversation about the political, social and economic part women played in the last century. It reminds us that women have both beauty and brains; they are more than fleeting pleasures; and have more to offer than snagging a man. In the end, "Respect" is pure, unadulterated entertainment.

Through June 24

THEATER REVIEW: 'Respect' Women's Musical Inspires Joy, Pride

By Charlene Baldridge for the North County Times

Although it may not be ideal entertainment for the men in one's life (depending on the men in one's life), "Respect: A Musical Journey of Women" is an amazing musical revue that celebrates women's social, cultural and personal metamorphoses through popular songs dating from 1900.

Written by Dorothy Marcic and premiered professionally in 2004, the piece is being performed around the country. A month-long run at San Diego's Lyceum Theater opened last weekend.

The San Diego company stars four women with national credits who are known for their work in area musical theater. Their respect for one another and their investment in presenting the material is palpable. The musical standard is extraordinary.

The high-energy piece lifts audiences from whatever doubts they may have ---- even an older woman leaves with the feeling she can go out and conquer the world. Women of all ages were in attendance at a weekend matinee.

Although "Respect" was written by an academic and professor at Columbia University, it's not a women's studies lecture with music. Unlike many such historical journeys through song, "Respect" has little pedantic preaching in between songs. This is thanks to the direction of Sarah Shahinian and to the low-key approach of narrator and musical ballast Leigh Scarritt.

Usually seen in her more flamboyant guise and wig size, Scarritt wears an adorable chestnut shag wig, and like the other three women is dressed in tastefully accessorized black (costume construction by Kate Stallons). She may be subdued visually and in the spoken word, but she delivers in the musical clutches, bringing the house down with her renditions of "Piece of My Heart," "I Will Survive," and "In My Daughter's Eyes."

The other vibrant women, all splendid vocalists with smooth, accurate delivery, are Nancy Snow Carr (seen recently as Smeraldina in the world premiere of "The Servant of Two Masters" at Lamb's Players Theatre; Lisa H. Payton, a native San Diegan who wowed Rep audiences as Jenny Driver in "The Threepenny Opera"; and Kelsey Venter, who recently portrayed Sarah Brown in Lamb's Players' fine production of "Guys and Dolls."

Each gets several solo turns. There are numerous trios and ensemble numbers as well. The song list in the two-hour show may be a long one, but assisted by music director Cris O'Bryon and his band ---- guitarist Jim Mooney, bass Kevin Cooper Sr., and drummer/percussionist Tom Versen ---- it goes by quickly.

Carr is a versatile performer who belts and croons equally well and has an amazing capacity for physical comedy. Aware of Venter's acting chops (she was also in the Lamb's production of the drama "Trying"), who knew she had such range? A standout is her performance of "These Boots Are Made for Walking," in a fun section of the show where all four women don boots (choreography by Carmela Guiteras Mayo). Also fine vocally and dramatically is Payton's blues medley (with "God Bless the Child" and "Tain't Nobody's Business If I Do") that pays tribute to Lady Day, Bessie Smith and Rosa Parks ---- and by extension to all black women, who Marcic rightly says have had an even more challenging time gaining respect in our society.

One goes home from this musical celebration of women's achievements with appreciation for women's rights and privileges in our society ---- and yet, nagging concern over the future pervades the joy and pride.

DETAILS:

When: 2 and 7 p.m. Wednesdays; 8 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays; 2 and 8 p.m. Saturdays; 2 p.m. Sundays; through June 24

Where: Lyceum Theatre, 79 Horton Plaza, San Diego

THEATER REVIEW: Lyceum stages "Respect: A Musical Journey Of Women"

JEAN LOWERISON - SDGLN CRITIC
May 2nd, 2012

Respect - San Diego Cast"What would be the soundtrack of your life?" asks the Narrator (Leigh Scarritt) of "Respect: A Musical Journey Of Women," a woman-centered and largely woman-powered musical playing through June 24 at the Lyceum Theatre.

Playwright and Columbia University professor Dorothy Marcic once traced the history of women in the 20th century for a speech, realizing in the process that the changing character of pop songs (from Gershwin's "Someone To Watch Over Me" to Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive") told the tale.

She wrote a book about it in 2002 ("Respect: Women And Popular Music"); the musical "Respect: A Musical Celebration Of Women" was the next logical step, beginning as a one-woman show. That morphed into a four-woman show which has been performed around the county since 2004. Sarah Shahinian directs the show's local premiere.

The show begins in 1900 and traces the history of women, partly through true stories from the Marcic family's own migration and her own Wisconsin upbringing and subsequent history. The show takes us from women-as-property to women in the board room.

Scarritt, a staple on local stages (and a teacher of musical comedy performance herself) has three fine and versatile singers to help her tell this story. She needs them, with a repertoire of some 70 songs in various styles, some solo, many requiring close harmony.

North Carolina native Nancy Snow Carr, who came to San Diego to attend the country's only MFA program in musical theater at SDSU, has a lovely mezzo voice and distinguishes herself here on Rodgers and Hart's classic "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered." Another favorite is her sexy rendition of "Whatever Lola Wants."

Kelsey Venter clowns it up in that ultimate waiting-for-the-phone-to-ring song "It Must Be Him," shows feminine loyalty in "As Long As He Needs Me" and puts the womanpower into the Nancy Sinatra favorite "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'."

Lisa H. Payton shows fine blues chops in "Blues In The Night," brings a tear with "God Bless The Child" and takes over the joint with the meanness of "Hard Hearted Hannahf (the vamp of Savannah, the meanest girl in town).

Shahinian directs with a sure hand. Carmela Guiteras Mayo contributes some jaunty choreography. Cris O'Bryon backs up the ladies with a quartet of fine musicians. The set design by Dirk Durossette is simple but effective; James Leitner's lighting and Mark Valenzuela's sound Ð and most especially his video design Ð add to the show (photos, often comedically illustrative, flash during certain songs); Kate Stallons' generic costumes are less interesting but workable.

"Respect" is more revue than anything else. If you'd like a painless (though loud), well-executed trip down the memory lane of Top 40 hits about women, this is the show for you.

The details

"Respect: A Musical Journey Of Women" plays through June 24 at the Lyceum Theatre, 79 Horton Plaza, downtown.

Wednesday at 7 pm, Thursday-Saturday at 8 pm; Sunday at 6:30 pm; Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday at 2 pm.

Much Respect Goes to the Talented San Diego Cast of "Respect: A Musical Journey of Women"
By Joanne DiBona

An old song has a funny way of jarring one's memory. Details of significant life events may fade over the decades, but all it takes is a tune from yesteryear to bring one back to a specific moment in time, or to one long-forgotten life experience.

This is the appeal of the high-energy musical, Respect: A Musical Journey of Women, currently enjoying a run at the Lyceum Theatre in downtown San Diego. Its concept is simple, yet powerful: the history of women in the 20th Century is brought to life through the popular songs representing each era. Excerpts from some 60 songs spanning the decades, combined with a masterful script, tell the story of the tumultuous journey of woman as they struggle to gain their rights and personal freedom.

Any production, no matter how well-written, is only as successful as its cast, and this is where the San Diego production shines. An incredibly talented cast of four San Diego performers (Leigh Scarritt, Nancy Snow Carr, Lisa H. Payton and Kelsey Venter) backed by an equally stellar 5-piece band, brought this musical to life from the moment they stepped on stage.

The vocalists not only performed with style and energy during their solo numbers, but joined in masterful harmony on several songs throughout the evening. Their perfectly-executed rendition of George Gershwin's classic, Someone to Watch Over Me, at the onset of the show promised musical excellence ahead. Not once during the two hour run time (and one hundred musical years) the production covered, did this exceptional cast disappoint.

The audience was propelled through a variety of emotions throughout the evening as the script and song selection went from the frivolous (a Betty Boop version of I Wanna Be Loved By You portraying the '20s), to the comedic (It's Howdy Doody Time and Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend in a humorous look back on the '50s), to the historic (Over There and Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy in a '40s WWII salute), to the painful (God Bless the Child and Ain't Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around in a soul-stirring commentary on the struggle for civil rights in the '50s and 60s).

Women's dependence upon men through the decades was brought to light with songs such as As Long as He Needs Me and I Will Follow Him.

Not only did the cast's vocal talents hit perfection, their acting and comedic abilities made for some unforgettable moments throughout the evening. Kelsey Venter had the audience in stitches with her rendition of the classic Vicky Carr tune, "It Must Be Him." Poised in front of a giant red telephone, Kelsey portrays the anguish of a young woman in the '60s who (without the aid of modern conveniences such as cell phone, voice mail and text messaging) awaits a call from "him" --that never comes. In another side-splitting routine, Kelsey belts out the Nancy Sinatra classic, These Boots Are Made for Walkin' , as white boots fall out of the sky to be donned by the rest of the cast as they join her in a poetic "stomp" on male dominance.

The production culminates in a rousing version of I Will Survive, a celebration of the resilience of womanhood in overcoming the trials and tribulations of a century—a rendition which brought the entire audience to their feet in joyous applause and a standing ovation.

This evocative musical is the brainchild of Columbia University professor Dr. Dorothy Marcic, who spent years researching the Top-40 songs of each decade since 1900 in her quest to tell the whole story of women in the 20th century. The show was developed into a full-scale musical theatre production in 2004 and has since played in major venues across the nation and internationally.

The outstanding San Diego production has certainly garnered this reviewer's R.E.S.P.E.C.T!

Coronado Resident Takes Center Stage
Leigh Scarritt, along with two performers from recent Lamb's Players productions, stars in "Respect: A Musical Journey of Women," in downtown San Diego.

When you say the word 'Respect,' it conjures all kinds of images and associations. But if you SPELL the word, only one thing comes to mind: Aretha.

That demand for esteem and equality is at the heart of "Respect: A Musical Journey of Women," which is playing at the Lyceum Theatre in San Diego through June.

At the center of the musical action is the Narrator, played by well-known, multi-talented musical theater performer (and frequent director) Leigh Scarritt, who grew up in Coronado, where she still lives.

The show's evolution: The show is the brainchild of Columbia University professor Dorothy Marcic, a former Fulbright scholar and delegate to the U.N. Economic and Social Development Summit.

It all began in 1999, when she was asked to make a presentation at a conference about the equality of men and women. She had recently begun using music in her management lectures, and she realized that the history of women in the 20th century was chronicled in Top 40 pop songs, from George Gershwin's "Someone to Watch Over Me" to Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive."

She found that, as the role of women changed, the music shifted, and they influenced each other. She chose 50 songs, and through them, told her story Ð about her own family and about women in general, moving, as she's said, "from co-dependence to independence."

That shift, from being the property of men to being the president of corporations, is on view in the character's names: One, played by Kelsey Venter, is known as the Dependent Ingenue, while another, played by Nancy Snow Carr, is called the Young Adult Cynic.

She wrote a book about the connections, "Respect: Women and Popular Music," and from there, it was a short hop to musical theater.

At first she performed the piece herself, as a one-woman show. Then she set it free. Since 2004, it's been performed all over the U.S. and in Australia.

Now "Respect" is making its San Diego debut, under the direction of Sarah Shahinian, who was the assistant director for the Philadelphia production and the last national tour. Everyone involved in the local production (except the four-piece all-male band, under the musical direction of Cris O'Bryon) is female.

Two of the other performers, like Scarritt, have strong ties to Coronado.

The Narrator: Scarritt loved Coronado as a child and chose to raise her child here.

"It's a great place to raise a kid," Scarritt says of her own upbringing, and her daughter's. "It has a small-town feel, where people really care about their children and everyone knew each other. Years ago, we never locked the door."

Besides being a charismatic performer (last seen at the Lyceum in "The Great American Trailer Park Musical" and "The Threepenny Opera," among many other productions at theaters around the county), Scarritt has trained almost all the young musical talent in town, through her Leigh Scarritt Productions.

In "Respect," the petite powerhouse explains, "I play the playwright. I'm a college professor and I tell her story, about how the music inspired her, and helped her understand her family, and the broader history of women. The songs go back to 1900, and all the way up to Christina Aguilera's "Beautiful," which I get to sing in the second act.

"It's brilliant how the show links the history with the music," Scarritt continues. "And also tells a personal story."

Though these are iconic songs (one of Scarritt's favorite moments is when she gets to belt out Janis Joplin's "Piece of My Heart", she says "these fantastic performers are singing in tribute, not trying to impersonate."

Scarritt's most emotional moment in the show is singing Martina McBride's heart-wrenching 2003 ballad, "In My Daughter's Eyes," which will of course make her think of her own daughter, Tiffany Jane, who was just named Blues Singer of the Year at the L.A. Music Awards.

"I weep every single time she sings that," says castmate Kelsey Venter, who along with another of "Respect's" high-octane singers, recently performed at Lamb's Players Theatre.

The Dependent Ingenue: Venter grew up in La Mesa, just down the street from San Diego State University, where she majored in theater, after attending Maryland Avenue School, La Mesa Middle School and Helix High.

Venter's parents still live in the house where she grew up. After college, she moved to San Francisco, to train in classical theater at the prestigious American Conservatory Theatre.

"My first love is musical theater," she says, "but I think it sometimes gets a bad rap. People consider it 'fluffy,' and say that 'serious' actors don't do it. I wanted to become a 'serious actor' and still do musical theater!"

After six years in the Bay Area, she returned last year to play the female lead in the two-person drama, "Trying" at Lamb's Players Theatre. Then she was cast as the ingénue, Miss Sarah Brown, in the Lamb's production of the beloved musical classic, "Guys and Dolls," which she says is "one of the shows that made me want to be an actor."

In "Respect," Venter especially loves singing "It Must Be Him" (first recorded by Vicki Carr in 1967) and "As Long As He Needs Me," from the musical "Oliver."

A few years back, when she was 18, one of her first professional jobs was in the '60s girls' musical, "Beehive," in which she appeared with fellow "Respect" performer, Lisa H. Payton.

"I guess I just can't stop singing about women!," she says with a chuckle. Like all the performers in this show, she can't stop talking about her castmates. They have truly bonded, and are in awe of each other's talent.

The Young Adult Cynic: Carr, who has lived in La Mesa since 2008, feels the same. She moved here from Missouri, where she and her husband, gifted actor/singer Geno Carr, taught at Stevens College.

A native of North Carolina who got her start on the national tours of "Phantom of the Opera" and "The Buddy Holly Story," Carr came to San Diego to attend SDSU, which has the country's only Master of Fine Arts degree in Musical Theatre.

The couple chose to live in La Mesa, to be close to campus.

"We love it," says Carr. "We love being able to walk to the village." Their favorite La Mesa restaurant is Gingham ("Southern comfort food!"), and Nancy is partial to the boutique, Wildlfowers.

The couple spent a Semester at Sea, traveling the world and teaching theater on board, and they can't wait to do it again. Recently, they appeared together in Lamb's Players productions of "The Servant of Two Masters" and "The Music Man." And now, she has "Respect."

"My favorite moments are singing the 1902 song, 'Bill Bailey' and the 1940 Rodgers and Hart classic, 'Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered,' from 'Pal Joey.' The part that warms my heart is the Whitney Houston song, "The Greatest Love of All,' which we do in beautiful three-part harmony.

"It's the whole story behind the show," she continued. "We find our strength within, and here are these women supporting me. It's a wonderful moment. I hope the audience feels it, and sees that it's not an act for us. We really do love and support each other."

The Take-away: "In the end," says Scarritt, "the show's message is 'Take responsibility for your own happiness. Be all you can be. See what women before you have done. It's all about empowerment.

"And don't think the show is for women only," Scarritt continues. The promotional materials say the show is 'For Girls (& Guys) Who Just Wanna Have Fun.' It's for men who love women and women who love their female friends."

The Details: "RESPECT: A Musical Journey of Women" continues through June 24 at the Lyceum Theatre in Horton Plaza, San Diego.

Performances are Wednesday at 7 p.m., Thursday-Saturday at 8 p.m.; Sunday at 6:30 p.m.; Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m.
