Christian Borle dazzles and entertains as multiple characters passing through the life of Miss Poitrine (Judy Kaye). The all-star cast that supports is full of fun and fabulous characters too - Rachel York as the young Miss Poitrine, Tony Yazbeck as the dashing and debonair George Musgrove, Harriet Harris as the wealthy and evil mother and a fantastic dancing chorus of boys and girls and extras including so many names, faces and talents they are too numerous to list!
Mr. Borle masters the many characters with hilarity, quick costume changes, and lots of hamming it up. Ms. Kaye's humor is delicious and the music, songs, singing, and dancing are all well above average - especially considering this is a semi-staged production running for a very short time. Of course the Encores! Orchestra - lead by Rob Berman pulled off an outstanding performance on-stage as usual in all their glory.
This one is quick - so get your last minute tickets while they last!
