I have directed four youth productions (not in Des Moines but in that kind of milieu) of this play and have seen five professional productions. It never gets old. Perhaps the most affective play of the profoundly affective Sondheim canon, the play has something for everyone. The current production at the Delacorte is brilliant; I have disagreed with all the negative critiques because I did not see a single off-key note in the show. Which was especially reassuring for me since I was expecting to hate Amy Adams' Baker's Wife. I didn't see her as old enough, and I doubted her chops. But like everyone else in this version, she was brilliant, and I am grateful for the evening.

Please ask Amy about Julie & Julia on Julia Child's 100th birthday!

Rob Marshall is directing an upcoming version of this musical, is Amy interested in reprising her role?
