cute production

4.0
This was a very cute production; maybe a little too cute, but I guess that was the point, so I didn't mind that much. I think I laughed out loud a few times, which takes a lot for me to even chuckle, as I have a strange sense of humor. Robert Egizio has staged a worthy production, but this doesn't have quite the punch that his recent "Rocky Horror Show" provided. I liken this to his 'Tunnel of Love', after "Rocky" was his 'Born in the USA.' Obviously well done, but couldn't help but be a slight step down after just having a megahit.

Perhaps it was the material. The songs were good, but forgettable. The final number of Act One - Good Times Are Here to Stay, I think it was called - had me whistling it in the restroom during intermission, but I couldn't even begin to recall it now. The set was very impressive, and I'd love to know if Ron Chenoweth bears any relation to Broadway veteren Kristen Chenoweth. Maybe someone can get back to me on that. Other special mentions go to Kristie Krabe, Chris Skinner, and Matt Carter (playing a drastically different role than the last show I saw him in), but Kudos all around. Overall, well done.
