New musical makes magic by Sarah Arney The Weekender SEATTLE -- Patrick Cassidy was replaced by Jason Workman as Radames in Sunday evening's performance of "Aida" but the show was a great success nonetheless. The Tony-Award winning musical created by Elton John and Tim Rice is beautiful, with some rockin' singing by Simone as Aida and Kelli Fournier as Amneris. These main characters in the Disney Theatrical Production are forced to make choices that not only change their own lives, but that also "alter the course of his- tory. In a novel approach to musical theater, the women are actually strong and smart indi- viduals, although Amneris starts out with a very serious case of Barbie. She ends up wise and on the throne as the queen of Egypt, after condemning her unfaithful fiance to a tomb with his Nubian lover. A slave to Radames, Mereb (Jacen R. Wilkerson) adds humor to the show, making sly com- ments about the Pharoah and his son. Aida, too, makes a humorous jab at the people at war with her country, Nubia. "One thing about you Egyp- tians, you do a good thread count," she said to Amneris when preparing her wedding dress. The new music by Elton John (with lyrics by Tim Rice) jostles back and forth from classic Elton John to a bit of African drumming, and the dancers move well to the rhthyms, with the bright colors of rippling fab- rics enhancing the movement. Full of movement, lights and brilliant, exotic colors of the desert, the prize-winning design crew features Tony Award-win- ning choreography by Wayne Cilento, Tony Award-winning sets and costumes by Bob Crow- ley, and Tony Award-winning lighting design by Natasha Katz. Produced by Disney's Buena Vista Theatrical Group, this "Aida" is directed by Robert Falls. It is the first collaboration between Elton John and Tim Rice since their first musical hit, "The Lion King." This national tour of "Aida," was launched from the Historic Orpheum Theatre in Minneapo- lis and plays through May 26 at Seattle's Paramount Theater in the Volvo Broadway at the Para- mount series brought to Seattle by SFX Theatrical Group. The original Broadway show opened at The Palace Theatre on March 23, 2000 and received four 2000 Tony Awards. After Seattle "Aida" stops at Portland (May 29 to June 3) then Denver (June 6 to 24).
