    Stunning performance

    All the cast are perfectly suited for their roles - both musically and physically. It was visually exciting and the gradual introduction of color from the opening black and white sets and costumes to the full color finale was a most rewarding aspect. The orchestra was first rate and the entire production begs to be seen many times.
