Couldn't believe the body of work Leiber and Stoller were responsible for! Well performed with cute stagings of the songs I grew up with.

This review rating is based primarily on Act Two where the orchestra was on stage and the playhouse amplification system was properly tuned. The first act was unlistenable with the sound system distorting the voices to a level of misery. Also,...continued
