New This Week:

My take: Tesseract is one of those companies that is not shy about presenting new and provocative material. As Tina Farmer writes in her review for KDHX, "their mission to produce new plays that probe current topics in imaginative works is something the company has adhered to consistently and with success." She notes that this production "may need a few additional revisions to improve the pacing, but continues a string of shows from the company that are challenging, entertaining and deeply provocative."

My take: As I wrote in my review for KDHX, David Hein and Irene Sankoff's unapologetically autobiographical musical is a pleasant and pleasing little show. It's so light that a stiff breeze would blow it away, but its heart is in the right place, which counts for a great deal. Ed Coffield has assembled a great cast and directed them well. Sets and costumes are bright and colorful and the on-stage band is solid. When I saw it on its opening weekend it was sold out, so you might want to order tickets sooner rather than later.
