What's remarkable about Hunter Bell and Jeff Bowen’s 2008 musical is that they're able to take a party joke of a premise ("a musical about two guys writing a musical about two guys writing a musical") and keep it going for 90 minutes. Bell and Bowen's witty if sometimes self-indulgent material wins laughs and tells an engaging story, but really the credit for the success of this production belongs to director M. William Panek, keyboardist Justin Harner, and four triple threats: Neala Barron, Matt Frye, Yando Lopez, and Anna Schutz. The team throw their souls into making the show’s self-referential characters likable and utterly fascinating despite the meta gimmick. —Jack Helbig
