Low-key and engaging

"A Catered Affair" is a quiet chamber piece, and unfortunately that is what doomed it. Hemmed in by the bright lights and spectacle of such megahits as "Wicked", "Rent", "Phantom", and others, it got drowned out in the roar of the modern theater scene. The score is lovely, with melodies that float gently by the ears. The lyrics enter the heart and soul of every character and never leave. The actors performance, as preserved on CD, is phenomenal. If you ever get a chance to see this gem locally, do it. You wont be disappointed.
