Kokandy Productions kicks off its season with the Marvin Hamlisch musical, Sweet Smell of Success, about a ruthless journalist who will stop at nothing to get his way. All-powerful gossip columnist JJ Hunsecker can make or break anyone he wants and everyone from chorus girls to Congressmen live in fear of his poison pen. Until now, his beloved half-sister was the only person immune from his vicious methods, but now that she has plans for a life and love of her own, Hunsaker turns his destructive powers on her. Enlisting the aid of opportunistic young press agent Sidney Falcone, he sets in motion a series of life-altering events that will make you wonder just how far he will go to get what he wants.

The actors were all very good (one fumbled a few lines, but given the number of words and the pattern of delivery, particularly in the first scene, I don't judge too harshly). But the real star was the play itself. So creatively written in both dialogue and intertwining the stories. Highly recommended.
