This Production, the sixth I’ve seen, has moments that feel slightly less relevant than they may have nine years ago when the show originally opened, but the cast infuses so much energy and enthusiasm that it felt really fresh. The musical itself, shouldn’t be as wonderful as it is. It seems a gimmicky thirty-minute idea at best, but it deftly handles the broad over-the-top crass humor by offering easy jokes alongside bigger ideas of faith, friendship, and the power of belief. And the music is flat-out great.
