Now I am not directly involved in this production. I haven’t seen it. *But* I did give Theatreworks my blessing to create it, and I’ve heard a lot of fans talk about how good it was. It’s fun, silly, accurate to the story, and entertaining, plus there is toilet paper. TOILET PAPER! A scene from an earlier staging of the musical is above.
If you missed it the first time, I highly encourage you to catch this return showing!
