Sea Cabinet is a lovely and unique collection of songs, beautifully performed, and the whole thing is inventively staged with good use of the entire space of the theater by director Lindsay Fitzgerald. Once again Elision brings us a piece of music-theater that you really can't hear anywhere else. So if you're a fan of musicals who's tired of repeated performances of the same old musicals, check this one out. And then make plans to see a remount of the darkly hilarious Ruthless!, the inaugural production at Theatre Elision's brand new theater space in Crystal.
Sea Cabinet continues at the Southern Theater through June 9 only, with tickets just $20 (or free for members of the Southern's ARTshare program).
