“I felt it was doable to strip this down, like we did with ‘Candide,’ ” said Meerdink, referring to MMT’s 2001 production at Bryant-Lake Bowl. “There’s no reason for it to be as big as it was on Broadway.”

Or to put into Norma Desmond’s lingo, the musical is still big, it’s the stage that got small.
