Very funny - looks like a Benny Hill sketch.

As someone who has conducted roughly 35 musical theatre productions, it looks to me that his skill is negligible and/or he took the lazy way out.

Or maybe they were over-rehearsed.

It's still funny, though.......thanks, John!

That's a scream.

Yeah, over-rehearsed. I don't know how the orchestra managed to keep going in spots. I might have spit into my clarinet and emitted quite a shriek.
