"I saw this first at their Actors Fund special performance in a theatre full of fellow actors and artists. I was sitting a few feet from Bebe Neuwirth and a few other performer friends of mine. When the lights came up for the intermission, I remember that we were looking at each other in stunned silence with a mutual 'OMG' expression on our faces. Those boys were amazing and we could not believe what all the kids and cast were doing. And the show is a beautiful re-imagining of the film - capturing the spirit of the film but in that uniquely musical theatre way."
