The ensemble’s energy is unflagging and their singing is pitch perfect and artistically tight. The children’s ensemble is pure joy, personified by some of the cutest kids alive. The scenes where they’re all on stage, such as the number “When You’re a Wimp”, are some of the best in the show.   THE COLUMN
