The choreography is brilliant, from the exuberant folk and clog dancing styles used by the townsfolk to the tap ranging from traditional to a hybrid with hip-hop moves to the stunning ballet sequence with Billy and his older self.

I think being a father really helps, because I’m on this journey myself right now, and fairly new to it. I can relate what’s going on in the show every night to what’s going on in my life.

While it is funny throughout, most of the laughs come from the oversized buffoonery of its four caricatures, and this is perhaps my biggest problem with the play.
