Programs theater company; Theater on the Square; directed by Matthew Cunningham; Jan. 2-4
For their inaugural production, Programs chose Edges
, a musical revue about being a young adult. It's no Spring Awakening
- instead, it's an innocuous little show with unimaginative staging and adequate, if not exceptional, vocal performances. Brian Benson, Dane Rodger, Mikayla Reed and Sarah Hoffman are sweetly enthusiastic in their parts. But the show just meanders along with no clear vision and occasionally painful harmonization. Passé material, like an ode to Facebook, lacks any original treatment. The one exception was Reed's rendition of "Man of My Dreams," which was lightened up by Benson and Rogers.
