Review:
The mixture is nicely varied: folk-rock standards such as "Drift Away" and "Big Yellow Taxi"; the bouncy beat of show tunes like "All That Jazz"; and some higher octane cuts like Christine Aguilera's "Miss Independent" and "Fighter". While the young performers may not bring the same polish to the production as the originals, their abundant energy more than carries the day.
