Music and Lyrics: Stephen Sondheim, Book: James Lapine. Gold Coast Little Theatre, Southport. Director: Joshua McCann-Thomson. February 2 – March 2, 2013.
This inspired interpretation of the classic was very well received by both the Sondheim devotees and those audience members not familiar with the piece.
Joshua McCann-Thomson had assembled a talented ensemble cast, well versed in the art of performing Sondheim’s unique style and they carried it off perfectly.
Under the Musical Direction of Ethan Jones, the cast ensured that the lyrics were never sacrificed throughout the fast pace of the show, and what a hectic pace it was.
