Lakewood Theatre Company
July 16, 2005; closes August 21, 2005
Well-intended, I’m sure, but schlumpy, lackluster production seemed half-baked take on senseless, dated book with unmotivating score that needs lots of fanaticism to work. Energetic, devoted chorus suffered from weak or miscast principals, absent direction, bland choreography, unoriginal technical elements. And why not put the musicians in the orchestra pit?
