MarryMeALittle brooding

Bethany Thomas and Austin Cook shine in “Marry Me a Little”

**** Highly Recommended **** Porchlight Music Theatre’s new production, “Marry Me a Little” is a tiny gem, a revue using songs pulled from many of Stephen Sondheim’s musicals.  My friend Jeffrey called it a “chamber musical”, since it’s short, sweet and done completely in song.  In a way, it reminded me of a tide pool – bear with me here – you can look inside this tiny space and see two lonely people fantasizing about a love that will never happen.  If you like Sondheim, you’ll love “Marry Me a Little”!  4 Spotlights
