Really enjoyed the performance, the singing was good (though there were a couple very minor sound problems).
The moderns day setting / interpretation didn't seem to add anything for me, but it disnt detract either.
They made the show work...

The performance was excellent! It was a very small theater, so one can really appreciate the acting of the performers. They did a great job portraying the characters and definitely pulled emotions out of the audience. I highly recommend...
