Triumphant. Always engaging, often moving and even rousing, the show boasts dramatic interest and integrity on its own theatrical terms, courtesy of director Diane Paulus, librettist Diablo Cody and that peerless, soulful balladeer of the modern Western condition, Alanis Morissette. Not since ‘Rent’ has a musical invested so many bravura roles with so much individual life.
