You donít have to agree with its politics to applaud the audacity of this show and enjoy its alternately ironic and rollicking humor, however.

Zander Meisner is a strong Bobby, Michelle Merz reveals a fine voice and a lot of poise as Hope, and Jessica Gisin-Mosleyís Penelope Pennywise unleashes a surprisingly flowing soprano.
