Don’t get me wrong, this is a fun musical with memorable songs like Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’ and The Surrey with the Fringe on the Top, and Ado Annie (Tiffany Claire) is a real hoot, especially when she sings I Cain’t Say No! But even though everything turns out positive, it is that dark dissonant cord, echoing through the entire show, that adds interest and realism.
There are some fine voices in the cast, a live orchestra and some pretty fancy dance steps thanks to choreographer Nina Raggio. Warning! There are several gunshots that could have a traumatic effect if you’re not prepared for them. According to cast member Peter Downey, they were going for a “Shane effect,” which translates to the loudest bang they could get for their gunshots.
