Sweet and funny
This is a beautiful piece--visually, musically, and in terms of the fine acting.The theatre was nearly full, and everyone laughed together. Deep laughs of recognition. I noticed quite a lot of gray hair around me, and perhaps this is a virtuoso piece for people of "a certain age."
The outcome is somewhat predictable--we all know that people get old and frail and eventually die. Less usual is the treatment of the parts of us that live until the end: our love of (in this case) music, and our love for each other.
The inclusion of actual, older musicians was a real treat.
