As Rain ended the concert with a couple monster songs, "Let It Be" and "Hey Jude," one thing was surprisingly clear: the messages found in the Beatles' music are still as meaningful—and important—as they were when they were first written. Peace is possible; we just need to give it a chance.

The one-and-one-half-hour production seemed to fly by as Shanley's story unfolded at a quick pace. His tender moments were genuine without being overly sappy and the dialogue was crisp and engaging.

But it might not gel were it not for the great score. High-energy song-and-dance numbers like "Privilege to Pee" (featuring the delightful Zoe Vonder Haar as Penelope Pennywise) and "Mr. Cladwell" have all the hustle-and-stomp of, say, South Pacific's "There Is Nothin' Like a Dame" or Guys and Dolls' "Luck Be a Lady."

Maybe in a different production she could have gotten by with an OK performance, but in Les Misérables, she should bring her A-game every night.

It's all about the past, an old passion that we are encouraged to care about by the despair and horror of its absence. We get 80 minutes of moaning for something we never knew, and it never really starts to click.

I have to be honest, that was one of the two times I got both teary-eyed and a case of the goose bumps.
