BWW Review: No Trouble with Theatre by the Sea's THE MUSIC MANBWW Review: No Trouble with Theatre by the Sea's THE MUSIC MAN
by Andria Tieman - Jun 26, 2017

One thing that is incredibly reliable about summer musicals at Theatre by the Sea is that they take the classics you know and love, and perform them at a very high level without trying to go outside of the box.  Shows like Meredith Willson's THE MUSIC MAN are classics for a reason, and even if the script seems slightly dated at times, it hearkens back to a nostalgia that's warm and fuzzy, where you can just sit back and revel in the great songs without having to think too much.  Theatre by the Sea's take on this beloved musical is comforting like a giant vanilla waffle cone on a hot summer's day, but filled with high energy musical numbers, absolutely amazing sets and talented performances.  This is musical theatre at its best, and it's a pleasure to experience it.
