The Ballad of Johnny Boy

Walk&Talk Theatre Company—MTC Up the Alley

Three men tasked with annotating the deeds of the dead engage in a musical content of embellishments and lies to show how unique the life of our Johnny Boy actually was. For any show of this particular genre, namely a musical, the enjoyment of such is highly correlated towards enjoyment of the chosen genre, in this case acoustic indie. Having seen this show twice, I can confidently say this is a stellar and well acted example of the genre.
