Perhaps the lightest, friskiest and most underrated classic of the Broadway musical's golden age, Adler and Ross' workers-versus-management comedy follows labor troubles from the factory floor to the union hall to -ÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã¢â¬ï¿½ in its allusive '50s way -ÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã¢â¬ï¿½ the bedroom. This concert-style Musical Theatre Heritage production emphasizes the memorable songs "Steam Heat," "Hernando's Hideaway" and the knock-'em-dead "I'll Never Be Jealous Again." MTH productions are invariably well-cast, well-sung and well worth your patronage. Add a small orchestra and a cast of 17 ÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã¢â¬ï¿½ including the funny James Wright; the dazzling Karen Errington; and Tim Scott, the world's only professional Royals fan ÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã¢â¬ï¿½ and this looks like August's only must-see musical. Through Aug. 31 at Off-Center Theatre, on the third floor of Crown Center, 2450 Grand, 816-221-6987.
Thursdays-Saturdays. Starts: Aug. 28. Continues through Aug. 31, 2008
