There are some shows that tempt a reviewer to write a lengthy essay going into great detail about the many reasons why the show succeeds or fails.

While there is, of course, much to say about the touring production of the Broadway musical Pippin, now at Providence Performing Arts Center, the production's merits can absolutely be summed up briefly: See. This. Show. (more...)
