How was your experience?
I agree with the previous reviewer that the writing was a bit anemic. Characters could have been more fully developed, dramatic tensions could have been more fraught, but you know what? The performers were flawless, the timing couldn't have been better, the enthusiasm and abilities of the actors/singers/dancers were on a par with what we were accustomed to see in San Francisco, and it was a huge relief to find a great theater company in Atlanta. We'll attend more of Theatrical Outfit's productions. Kevin Harry, in particular, was astonishing, perhaps we were swayed by our front row center seats, but as his voice soared in his biggest musical number those were real tears on his cheeks. I don't think anyone can fake that.
