Daniel McDonald and Melissa Errico lead the cast of High Society, a stage adaptation of the 1950s Cole Porter musical film, which has opened a pre-Broadway engagement at Actors' Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco. If you have seen the production, please write a review. How does the stage show compare to the film? Which parts, if any, work better or less well on stage? If you'd never seen the film, how does this production strike you as a stage musical? Has librettist Arthur Kopit done a good job of building a book around the new songs? Has lyricist Susan Birkenhead written new lyrics that complement Porter's? How have the actors found or not found new ways to interpret their well-known roles? Is it ready for Broadway?
