The show is a demanding trip for four performers. Welcome Ed Baker back on stage after a longish absence. Jean Burk beats Ed on the time-off score, on stage after 29 years. Ethan had some good songs, and Rachel brought her energetic presence and voice - but the singing, in general, was a little uneven. The script offers laughs, often in the sexist-joke genre - interspersed with some refreshing, fun videos, which I doubt actually came WITH the show, but seem to be added as "video garnish" perhaps provided by "sound and projection" Joe Dickson... and/or Director Rick? Rick was also an entertaining addition as the voice of the race track commentary and other auditory-only characters.
