There was one element of the show that I did not care for. During the finale, a dozen children in modern-day dress were brought on stage to listen to The Baker tell his story. They sat for a bit and then participated in the number. It was far too literal for my taste and it pulled me out of the immersive, magical world that I’d been enjoying all evening.

Interesting - I guess this kind of thing depends on the show and the direction. Because I think to the moment at the end of the Once On This Island revival where a group of children came on for "Why We Tell The Story," I thought it was a touching and exciting moment. Maybe this just didn't work as well?
