The 3 vignettes all dealt with truth becoming a lie and lies becoming the truth. Very interesting combination of events and times in history. Songs were varied enough not to seem repetitive. In the 2nd Act, the performers were on key almost all the time, which made it far more engrossing than the off-key 1st Act. Worth seeing just to appreciate the variety of musical styles and the historical shifts.
