Privates on Parade
Roundabout Theatre
Todd Haimes, Producing Director
"Peter Nichol's vaudeville play about camp and colonialism in 1948 Malaysia is a lively and highly entertaining show, topped by a zesty star turn by Jim Dale as a flitty drag performer. It looks like a strong candidate for commercial transfer after its nonprofit run at the Roundabout."
Variety

"With his gymnastic wit and droll body, Jim Dale places his signature on whatever character he chooses to play, as he demonstrates anew in the New York premiere of Peter NIchol's Privates on Parade. As director, Larry Carpenter has nimbly managed the many transitions, as the actors move back and forth between barracks room banters and vaudeville performance."
