This one's a bit of a divider. Amanda Dehnert's revival gets 2.5/4 stars from me:
[O]n the whole, there's just too much busyness going off in all directions. A silent-film motif (with video projection by Sean Nieuwenhuis) often takes away from the production numbers, and there are too many ill-advised attempts to get the audience involved, including a failed gambit to get people dancing in the aisles. I understand Dehnert wants us to feel implicated, but it just makes us feel uncomfortable.The Star's Richie O goes up a half star to 3, while The Sun's John Coulbourn goes with 4.5/5 despite calling Trish Lindström "an unfortunate choice" for Sally Bowles.
