This light opera has : a simple but very clever script, marvelous music that has lived on in popularity for more than a century, an excellent live orchestra, brilliant and vibrant costumes , an enormous well-rehearsed ensemble, lead vocals that fill the room and stir an audience of mixed ages and tops it off with well-rehearsed comedic timing and body-acting . A remarkable entertainment experience. Lighting is perfect for a traveling show in different locations. After a performance, they rush out to the lobby to greet , thank and pose for photos ... with only 3 hours between shows ! Super - titles above stage for those less familiar with lyrics. Lamplighters continue to glow with passion, power and personality.
