The weather was Warm. I wore schlubwear. It's Boston! Anything which doesn't come branded with a B and have some sport dimwit's name on it is upscale. .

An ambitious and engaging production of a challenging musical by a new production company. Adding insight to the event was the talk-back by the composer/lyricist, Adam Guettel, grandson of legendary composer Richard Rodgers.

This staging of this production was excellent. At times it seemed that we, the audience, were in the cave with Floyd Collins. The performer who starred in the Floyd Collins role was excellent. Everytime he sang, it was captivating.
