There's something liberating about watching a great piece of children's theater, even if you have no child of your own to bring along.
The cast seems somehow more daring and fearless of mistakes. Dance sequences and songs seem more heartfelt and soulful. Without the exacting and often unforgiving eye of grown-ups to keep themes in line and details on schedule, the production sails along as if by magic. And it's all because the spirit of childhood pushes it effortlessly along.
