The Bridget Carpenter (book), Tom Kitt (music), and Brian Yorkey (lyrics) musical may be critic proof (the La Jolla Playhouse recently extended the run another week). The title aside, this is an innocuous piece done with stopwatch precision, thanks to Christopher Ashley's inventive direction, Sergio Trujillo's choreography, Beowulf Borwitt's fish-eye lens set, and committed performances by Heidi Blickenstaff and Emma Hunton as the mother and daughter who change bodies and see from the other's perspective. But almost every song is blasted without nuance, the musical has a safety net beneath it, and just isn't all that freaky. Worth a try.
