How was your experience?
I was initially squeamish about seeing this show, but went because of a friend who had a bit part in it. Was pleasantly surprised at how well the cast performed Sondheim's very challenging (wordy, often discordant) score, and how very watchable it was. Suitable for kids over 10, but they let in kids over 5. It was a very fast three hours, very enjoyable and well-produced. Director Ron Scarlata and Conductor Hector Salazar did their usual magic, and the cast was very professional -- always on pitch and powerful. Great job by all involved.
