I LOVE A PIANO

Riverside Theatre – Vero Beach, FL
Directed & Choreographed by DJ Salisbury


"The cast is comprised of six players who travel through time [including] Abby Church as Eileen….Together they provide the talent and energy of a full Broadway cast. Non-stop dancing, singing, and costume changes keep the audience entertained from prologue to finale...The cast’s voices were superb, and between their energy and the melodies that likely have found their way into your bones – it’s no wonder the singing is contagious…[their] dance steps are anything but light and playful, deserving a round of applause on their own.”
– Angela Smith, Indian River Press Journal

"…The singer’s strong voices allowed each cast member to use their voice talents as well as acting skills appropriate to the mood intended to be conveyed by the Irving Berlin songs. The cast was also able to show their comic attributes with a couple of intermittent interludes throughout the show…. Directed by DJ Salisbury, I Love a Piano stars Cynthia Ferrer as Sadie, Abby Church as Eileen, Anthony Christian Daniel as Jim, Jessica Lee Patty as Ginger, Richard Vida as Alex and Benique Randall as George. All are very talented entertainers who would receive a warm welcome if they decide to return to Vero Beach.”
