Maybe all the larger-than-life Mormons, big fish, and Aussie queens tramping through Chicago's theaters have me jaded, but this 1954 musical feels like a museum piece from another time, when unions ran the town and gender politics weren't proper dinner table conversation. Still, the Music Theatre Company's production is another showcase of Jessica Redish's flawless Fosse choreography (especially during the deliciously divey "Hernando's Hideaway") and a cast of top-notch talent. Jason Richards and Dana Tretta provide comic relief as Vernon Hines, the "time study man" who keeps Sleep Tite Pajama Factory on schedule, and Gladys, the witty object of his affection. And of his jealous nature—some passionate knife throwing certainly livens things up in the second act. —Marissa Oberlander
