Like refreshing sparkling cider: sweet, bubbly, innocent touch of tang. Incredibly endearing, in-the-moment ensemble holds clever, theatrically reverent split-script on even-heel, stabling well golly, folly. Shrewdly-designed, balancing Jeff Cone’s suitably outlandish costumes. Play-within-play actors meeting literal counterpoints seemed unnecessarily meta; how could this mirroring be realized real-time? Elucidate Dorothy’s transformation.
