This show reminded me a lot of the TV show ‘Scrubs’: Both move effortlessly from physical comedy to real pathos to heightened reality, with kicky songs and pithy dialogue smattered throughout.
I lost a lot of the text…both the script and the songs had really complex lines but some of the cast didn’t have the chops to let us hear it.
Overall, a very enjoyable time. Nice snappy pace, good smattering of songs, and the child and dad scenes were especially poignant. Definitely brought back memories of middle school!
