A Tale of Two Cities is the most unrevolutionary musical about a revolution you?ll ever see. As the bad-boy barrister who loses his head over a lady, Barbour tosses his unwashed hair with intensity. Aaron Lazar, as the wrongly accused aristocrat, is trés dreamy. That he barely resembles Barbour (big plot point!) is a problem — though not as problematic as Jill Santoriello?s trite lyrics and forgettable score. Dickens deserves far, far better.
