RECENT NEWS

RECENT NEWS! – Successful opening of Hairspray the Broadway Musical at the Garden Theatre. Director and choreographer of an amazing cast!

OTHER NEWS: Final weekend of the world premiere of my play, A Fine Line, at the Clockwise Theatre in Waukegan, IL. Possible future life for the production as it may move to a Chicago theatre in the near future.


Hairspray the Broadway Musical – Director Anderson did a stunning job… the music and production is so consistent that you never feel any song is a filler. Even a minor technical snag couldn’t slow this show down; it’s a steam roller of happy times, brilliant dance and songs to rekindle whatever youthful enthusiasm remains after your voyage through the cynical 90′s. – Carl F Gauze, Archikulture Digest

Alice Lost in Wonderland (now Shattered Alice) – Dark, disturbing ‘Alice Lost in Wonderland’ is remarkable. As a playwright, Anderson does an admirable job of emulating Dodgsonian doublespeak, making it difficult to distinguish his dense doggerel from excerpts of the original, and the psychiatric subject matter is a smart match for Carroll’s surreal scenarios. The show’s start is arresting, with dreamlike direction that borders on modern dance, and Anderson makes efficient use throughout of hidden surprises in his unitary set. – Seth Kubersky, Orlando Weekly

The Wizard of Oz – There’s a ton of powerfully good stuff going on on this stage… it never fell into the trap of slavishly cloning the original material but moved everything into stageable and riveting action. The show is HIGHLY recommended. – Carl F Gauze, Archikulture Digest

Biloxi Blues – “As a Viet Nam Army Veteran, this show made me laugh out loud and it also brought tears. It had to be the great production and acting in this performance because I have seen the “Blues” a couple of times and never had this reaction. Great job and thanks for the memories.” – Jim M.

The Rainmaker – …directed with tenderness by Rob Anderson, accentuates all the qualities that make us love this play — its kindness, its humor, its acceptance of the frailties of human nature and emphasis on the bonds of familial love.  …What’s most appealing, though, is the way Anderson and his actors have humanized characters that can be played as stock. – Elizabeth Maupin, The Orlando Sentinel

Superior Donuts - Michael Sapp’s smiley Franco is a force of nature – so full of himself that you think he has to be a con man, so exuberant that he fills the room. It’s an astounding performance from a very young actor, but Anderson doesn’t let him clobber the other characters: Every move seems right. – Elizabeth Maupin, The Orlando Sentinel

An Inspector Calls – Director Rob Anderson has crafted a gripping tale, one that provides a welcome — and telling — antidote to all the sugar of the holiday season. – Elizabeth Maupin, The Orlando Sentinel
