TheatreWorks Silicon Valley welcomes home one whom Artistic Director Robert Kelley refers to as “family” as the company presents the U.S. premiere of Life of the Party. Its composer and lyricist, Andrew Lippa, has a twelve-year history with Kelley and Company, having premiered his A Little Princess there in 2004 as well as repeatedly brought in-progress musical creations to both their annual Writer’s Workshop and New Works Festival. This current musical review, conceived by the composer and David Babani, arrives (after a successful London run) in Mountain View in a first-class, stunning production that can surely rival anything one would hope to see on the West End or in New York.
