"The direction by Colton Pometta flowed seamlessly.  Some songs have no "Tah Dah" finish for the audience to clap and cheer.  Why?  Because life moves on, because another character has something to say, and not because, like sometimes in French productions, the director has no clue about how to finish a number in a musical play."
