Insight Out Theatre Collective
September 23, 2005; closes October 1, 2005
Simple story could be told more simply. Muddled, bloated, often confusing book, score lost innocence, naïve charm from earlier incarnations. Needs to distill its message. Unhelpful staging, cluttered choreography. Fervent ensemble had conviction; Baladi band fine; Mars top-notch; Waller naturally charming even without acting; Jaffe underutilized powerhouse. Interesting new space.
