Beth Henley, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Crimes of the Heart, serves up another of her fine Southern-fried comedies. This funny and heartfelt play focuses on Carnelle Scott, a pageant hopeful with a large and dysfunctional family, who believes that winning the Miss Firecracker Contest will restore her reputation and vastly improve her life. But her path to the crown and sash becomes complicated when a cousin, a former Miss Firecracker winner, arrives unexpectedly. San Diego Theatre Critics Circle award-winner Samantha Ginn takes on the title role. Learn More

Story line was very interesting. Set design was excellent. Costumes gave insight into each character's personality. Performers were fine actors. However, we have the same remark for Miles Anderson, who played Leonardo, in every production (3) we have seen him in, his diction is great but his voice does not project very far beyond the footlights, especially upstairs where we were sitting last night. Much of his dialog is lost and increasing his volume does not help (he shouted in an effort to project which made it even more difficult to understand), it is a placement problem with his voice. The scratchiness to his is not a problem, just the lack of projecting. After 3 tries we will after to forego any future productions in which he performs. It is a shame because his acting abilities are excellent and there are exercises to correct the problem.
