General Comments

Really entertaining show & some of the best casting I have ever seen, especially in look.  This is an iconic show & the characters are so well known, well by my generation anyway.  The right look is everything & Avonmore nailed it.  Lurch has to be really tall & Gomez must be smaller than Mortisha.  This was all done perfectly.  The opening of the modified curtains was genius as was the overall look of the show.  I thought the lighting needed a little more colour at times, that would be my only technical complaint.  Also because of size restrictions & I would guess budget, the band needed a larger brass section, it lacked OOmph at times.  

Principal acting & singing was a joy especially with Gomez, Mortisha & Wednesday.  A brilliant Comedy performance was portrayed for the part of Alice Beineke! The Choreography was sharp & persise as was the chorus in general.  

I went home on a buzz & with many memories of so many laugh out loud moments.
