This was a great experience all around. The new Wallis Annenberg Theatre in Beverly Hills is a beautiful space, perfect for midsized performances such as this one. And the show itself, a symphony with actors, telling the story of E.B. White's charming "Trumpet of the Swan," was absolutely delightful. In a sense, the piece works as an American-themed "Peter and the Wolf," with different characters each impacting the story in different ways, and each with something of a singular musical setting. Jason Robert Brown's music is warmly effective -- not necessarily unique or inventive -- but just right for the story it tells. And the various actors wonderfully enlivened their roles. Definitely worth seeing the next time it's presented. Kudos also to Christy Crowl, who conducted the orchestra with control and verve.
Recommended for guests age seven and older.
