THE PLAY: The popular doo-wop quartet returns for a final concert with a Holiday theme.

 

THE PRODUCTION: The foursome has sweetly nailed the earnest, eager demeanor of their wide-eyed characters. Their voices are usually lovely in harmony and solo, but occasionally not on pitch. The simple, silly choreography (by Tom Width, who also directed) is sometimes a bit off sync. The first act is a confusing, inane recap, but in Act Two the amusing songs come together delightfully. They literally worked up a sweat (those red sweaters) with lively fun. Throughout the weak spots, Width has kept the energy up and added plenty of comic bits.

 

THE POINT: After an uneven Act One, the second act provides holiday fun from this corny, yet comically-cute quartet.

 

3.5 out of 5 stars (3.5 / 5)

 

At Swift Creek Mill Theatre thru 1/9
