Comments: SLOC has scored high marks once again with their musical review of the early works of Stephen Sondheim.  This company consistently produces musical theatre at a level of excellence not routinely seen in the state.  The direction and overall production value of this piece was truly noteworthy and a very strong cast with a number of exceptional performers made this an engaging and profoundly entertaining musical theatre experience.
