Directed by Lindsay Nobile. Townsville Choral Society. Townsville Civic Theatre, Townsville, Queensland. 30 January to 8 February 2020.
I HAD not seen any productions of this 20-year old jukebox musical before this, but I can see exactly why it has lasted the distance to become the ninth longest-running show in Broadway history.
