Another Stage Mom (no login) Posted Oct 11, 2008 7:12 AM
My 14-yr-old daughter and I both enjoyed this show. It is NOT just for kids (although there were a LOT of them in the audience). The music is clever (our favorite number was the boys' blues quartet "Bad, Bad News") and of course the actors are amazing. The plot is a little contrived; my daughter said that, compared to her recent middle school experience, all the character types were very exaggerated and the situations weren't as clearly one way or the other as the story would have you believe. But the enthusiasm from the kids on the stage and the kids in the audience was genuine, and we had a lot of fun. This show needs positive word of mouth to hang in there, so I'm doing my part by spreading it!
