New This Week:
My take: I have, obviously, a vested interest in this. But the fact is that this is really quite an impressive lineup of local cabaret artists who are donating their time to a good cause. The Tavern of Fine Arts is a very cool venue with a good wine list and a small but tasty menu, so you'll want to come early and grab a bit to eat and a tipple before the show.

My take: I haven't seen this particular tour, but in my review of the 2005 tour I noted that composer/lyricist Stephen Schwartz and book author Winnie Holtzman have done a remarkable job of simplifying and reducing the story of Gregory McGuire's original novel while still remaining true to the original characters and their relationships. The score is one of Schwartz's best, and that's saying something.
