Watching Romy and Michele's High School Reunion: The Musical is like eating cotton candy. It's light, stupid, colorful, and clearly not good for you, but sometimes that's exactly what you are in the mood for. I was in the mood for it. There's nothing profound about it, but nobody turns to Romy and Michele's High School Reunion for profundity. Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino are not in it, but Courtney Wolfson and Stephanie Renee Wall have the airy affect down flat, they are funnier and more charming than photos suggest, and their chemistry and comic timing are unbelievably good. I can't fully explain why the show worked so well for me, except that it's glossy and exuberant in its theatricality, and it's as funny as the movie is, and it doesn't pretend to be anything it's not.
