Mary Louise Burke was indeed quite moving as she created the character of Kimberly but Victoria Clark is extremely moving too in a slighly differnt interpretation of the character. I didn't find the difference to be a problem at all. I loved and adored the original play. I loved and adored the musical only slightly less but I suspect I am in th emonority and most people will love the musical even more that the straight play. I wish the production a good healthy run and hope they are remembered with deserved nominations at awards time.
