Downtown Jay is a new family musical about leaving home and learning how to build a new one. Jay, whose nest building skills set him apart from other birds, bids a sad farewell to Back of Beyond and follows some geese to the big city.
While easily accessible for the younger set, this show has enough crazy costumes and lively dancing for everybody. (
