“...I heartily recommend this show. It is clear that Swanson has taken painstaking effort with many aspects of the production. Creative staging and efficient application of the neutral set pieces saved the visuals from seeming too sparse. Similarly, frequent and dramatic costume changes helped emphasize the passage of time and differentiate between the surprisingly extensive list of minor characters. But beyond the technical aspects, “Merrily” is simply a wonderful time. There was hardly a moment when I wasn’t feeling some sort of emotion in response to the devoted performances of the leads. Do yourself a favor and catch this show this weekend — you certainly will not be let down.”
