This blissfully silly concoction offers something downtown theater desperately needs at this time of year: an affordable family show free of holiday claptrap. Devised by John Stasey for Hull House Theater in 1964, then revived at the legendary St. Nicholas by William H. Macy, David Kovacs, and composer/lyricist Alaric Jans (a vet of the original), it gets yet another makeover--this time from Provision Theater--with Jans back at the keyboards. Tim Gregory's simple staging of the Captain's attempts to cast a new version of Romeo and Juliet trades in backstage humor without feeling too inside-baseball for the young'ns. David Dastmalchian as a hapless talent agent and Sean Patrick Fawcett as the Captain stand out in an engaging and energetic ensemble. --Kerry Reid
