Tulipomania : The Musical

The Arden Theatre, located at 40 N. 2nd Street, is producing Tulipomania: The Musical through July 1.  The orchestra is effectively seated on a deck making a slight overhang  above the rear of the stage. Some of the best  work in the show can be attributed to Scenic Designer James Kronzer and Sound Designer  Jorge Cousineau.  The plot of Tulipomania, although drawn from an actual tulip bulb craze which consumed the Netherlands in 1634, is a bit too thin to support a musical, even a one-act one.  The songs, while a bit contrived, do serve to move the story along. Solos by Alex Keiper as the young Woman and Joilet F Harris as Woman are strong. The dance routine by Adam Heller as Man is well executed.  The actors perform well while taking on multiple roles.
