Go Phish

Ever wonder what a musical composed by Phish frontman Trey Anastasio would sound like? On the off-chance that you have, Hands on a Hardbody should put any such wonder to rest.

Cast members are to be given credit for making do with the little they're tendered. Dale Soules offers some personality as the hardscrabble Janis, as does Hunter Foster as the jaded and jeering Benny. Both Soules and Foster give the most-dimensioned performances of the production, successfully overcoming the thin qualities of these book-written archetypes.
