THIS is what classic musical theatre is about. It's funny, it's entertaining, it's even romantic in spots. The songs are outstanding, the community created within the story feels very real, and it's reeeeally hard not to have a good time when performing in this show. Great distribution of stage time between male and female parts. Almost every single character has at least one memorable moment.
