The Music Man

Jonathan Goad is great as Professor Harold Hill. But this musical is not really to my taste – too formulaic and the tunes are limited in appeal with the exception of 76 Trombones.
The production got great reviews and the audience loved it, but for me it was not worth the drive to Stratford. (This may have been the problem, as we made a special trip just for this. )
But I actually fell asleep during the first act – something that is quite hard to do in a musical!

    I gathered from the program the interplay of the music for the songs was quite witty and sophisticated, but I mostly missed it. Goad was good and liked the set, though.
