About As Fine An Adaption As One Could Hope

I did not start with a good feeling. After all, here was one of SS's best comedies and the words were going to be changed and removed by some hack. How could that work out?

The answer was ...superb. Clever interpretation. Just enough of the original. Very good lyrics carefully enunciated by an excellent non-equity cast. Brilliant Malvolio, masterful Feste acting as clown magician and master of ceremonies. Even an engaging Olivia and Orsino, often the weakest parts of 12th Night. If the music was not exactly Gershwin or Bernstein it was always musical and even had one or two high points. It is the feeling of a musical that matters and works.

Some local critics got this one wrong with a false protecting SS attitude. As someone who knows their plays be assured this one was done exceptionally well and the audience agreed. GO.
