Really the Best Christmas Pageant Ever?

If Michael Dresdner is to be believed -- and I usually do believe the judgments expressed in his theater reviews -- then Lakewood Playhouse has succeeded in turning the worst Christmas pageant ever into The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.

Dresdner wrote: "If you’ve seen this play before, trust me, this version is way better."

OK, Michael, I'll take your word for it.

Two years ago I reviewed this play and, since it was a play loaded with religion, I left the theater in prayer. What I was praying for was that I'd never have to sit through it again.
But it seems they have miraculously turned a stereotypical and cliche-ridden script into something highly entertaining.
