Second Son performed in a community theatre production of this show when he was a young ‘un. It’s quite a nice musical; it was Rogers and Hammerstein, for Pete’s sake. You can find the whole show–not the one he was in, the one that was on the telly vision–somewhere on that YouTube thingee.
Live theatre has its own magic. No two performances are alike.
One of the most curious things about the community theatre experience was watching teenagers do absolutely magically transcendent things on stage, things that made you forget that they were teenagers, then turn right back into teenagers when they returned to the green room . . . .
