Schwartz’s cutting-edge score (his first for a major Broadway show) adeptly combines the best elements of ‘old school’ classic musicals from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s with the more ‘contemporary’ sound favored by such blockbusters of the day as “Jesus Christ Superstar” and “Hair”. Ms. Boole’s direction prudently capitalizes on these melodic strengths, with her overall concept evoking a kind of “Laugh-In” meets “Barnum And Bailey” ambience.
