Staying on the idea of the ridiculous for just a moment longer, I think we've all seen elementary school productions of Guys and Dolls. What if the kids were the cream of the crop of professional children, and the production were absolutely top notch — maybe Jerry Zaks recreating his sublime work from the 1992 revival? Do not tell me that's not high comedy. Those little four-foot bookies singing they've got the horse right here? That fifth grade Miss Adelaide developing a cold? That's comedy!
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
