The journey she takes puts a personal spin on the "ingenue" coming to New York, finding love and success, losing her innocence along the way, perhaps, but never her spirit. It is beautifully illuminated by the music of Irving Berlin, Stephen Sondheim, Marvin Hamlisch, Peter Allen, Jim Croce and Leroy Anderson. (more...)

BWW Review: New Century's THE REALISTIC JONESES is Clever but Unsatisfying
by Jay Irwin - Jun 12, 2017
