 A Stellar Performance in all Respects March 31, 2012 By Donald D. (Beverly, MA) See All My Reviews "From every standpoint, this is an excellent performance of an "old chestnut" brought to new life. The music is very well performed, the dancers excel, even the lesser lights and chorus. I not only recommend this performance but also sent copies to my three sisters. One has already called with high praise. I recommend it hightly." Report Abuse
