How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
For a shoestring production it was quite adequate. The complicated score is always a real challenge, but the accompaniment and actors' voices were quite satisfactory. The actors were fine. However, I really did get fed up with the Mute's "shtick" which totally ruined the sweet and lovely mood of "Soon It's Gonna' Rain" and mugging that was distracting and actually upstaged the action in places. If someone has never seen this show, it's worth seeing. For a true "Fantasticks" fan, save up and see it at the Jerry Orbach Theatre in NYC.
