Mary Robin Roth surely does justice to Dolly Gallagher Levi, that ever-optimistic “meddler in life.” She embraces every outrageous costume and every last theatrical moment and propels the joyous spirit of Rudy Hogenmiller’s crowd-pleasing Light Opera Works production. And Jerry Herman’s incredible score is, at its heart, no less than a celebration of the active approach to our time on this earth. “I put my hand in,” Dolly sings, in what you might call the ubertext of her exuberant yarn of matches made, unmade and remade. The strengths of Hogenmiller’s production lies in its energy, optimism and exuberant choreography.
Ms. Robin Roth’s numerous other credits include an Indianapolis Pat Award for her Fanny Brice in “Funny Girl,” Her Joseph Jefferson and After Dark Award winning performance as Carlotta in “Follies” at Drury Lane Oakbrook, Sister Robert Anne in “Nunsense,” Angie, the Mambo Winner in the reworked Marriott Lincolnshire production of “Queen of the Stardust Ballroom” and in “Bye Bye Birdie” Mrs. Schubert in the Chicago, Washington D.C. and San Francisco productions of “Sheer Madness”, both the National and International tours of “Evita” (International Cast Recording with Florence Lacey), and the Toronto Company of “Sunset Boulevard,” (where she understudied the leading role of Norma Desmond) Broadway Credits include Ensemble and performing the roles of Princess Puffer & Helena Landless in “The Mystery of Edwin Drood” and Jeanne McCarthy in “Sentor Joe” heck the woman even figure skated her way though the old Drury Lane Evergreen Park’s production of “The Nutcracker on Ice.”
