The concept of taking songs from various other musicals and creating an entirely new story line works quite well in this revue... Diana Sheehan is excellent, as is her female cohort (Ms. Smith) playing the younger, sassier (or maybe not!) part. The men are also entertaining in their own right, with quality voices, although the older gentleman was occasionally flat, especially in the 2nd half. Occasional microphone snaps from the waiter's gear were a distraction, I hope they can fix this!
Accompanying music was excellent -- very talented stage band!
Nice seating, comfortable and highly banked rows so there was no need to crane past someone's head to see the stage. Stage set and lighting were very well designed, adding a lot of variety to the background, despite the limited setting.
Overall, a very entertaining evening, and an amazing lyrical tour de force... whether you're familiar with the songs already, or not. Caution, though - if you get a beverage at the intermission, you'd better chug it... time is short...

Somewhat disappointing - voices were not as good as they could have been. HORRIBLE static from the body mike on one of the performers. The poor actress couldn't do anything but keep going. Next scene, she was holding a hand mike.
WaterTower Theatre is renowned for holding open auditions for each production so it’s highly unusual for Producing Artistic Director Terry Martin to pre-select talent months before the scheduled performance. But that’s exactly what he did for this iconic role previously played by Julie Andrews and Carol Burnett on Broadway.
“From the moment I saw Diana’s work it was clear that she was gifted,” says Martin. “She’s an exceptionally skilled actor and singer, and that’s exactly what we needed to carry this show.”
According to Diana, when Martin let her know he was thinking of producing the show and asked if she was interested in the lead role, she jumped at the opportunity. Why her enthusiasm for this particular role? “Two words,” emphasizes Diana. “Stephen. Sondheim.”
