As a new musical, I understand the need to critique the score and the book, but I was rather disappointed that more of the production team and production design was not discussed. I saw the show last Friday evening. While the show did have rough patches, the chemistry between LeTrent and Beckham was unmatched and Josh Martin is definitely someone to keep an eye on. He is brimming with talent and poise. The set was one of the most beautiful I've seen from a small company in the past few years, the lighting design was spot on, the projections were effective, and the costumes, particularly those seen in Christminster, were absolutely beautiful.
Kudos to Burning Coal, and to Ian Finley and Jerome Davis, on the premiere of a fantastic production.
