Rachel Lampert, the author of last year’s huge success; Tony and the Soprano, again gives us a high energy musical that is part Noises Off, part The Taming of the Shrew and all fun. It’s about family, romance and the power of positive thinking. The time is the Depression and a traveling troupe of four are about to perform Precious Nonsense of Gilbert and Sullivan in a barn in upstate New York. The owner of the “theater” has decided that he wants the operetta Pirates of Penzance instead. In the spirit of “the show must go on”, it does with the four original troupe members and a couple of others they have picked up along the way. Cross dressing, mistaken identities, love complications and crazy on stage/ off stage moments lead to fun for the entire family.
