Excellent production with a (mostly) strong cast. Only bummer--hopefully not ongoing--was sound mix: actor's mics were so low during 2nd act (two actually seemed to be turned off) that I missed most of the dialogue and lyrics. Very frustrating!

The Goodmans seem like a perfect family. The only problem is that sometimes Mom seems, well ... a little too happy.
