As Sheila, the ostensible girlfriend of Berger who attracts the attention of Claude, Tara Novie provides her character with a burgeoning feminism that allows her to be confrontational with a for the most part unaware Berger, yet be sensitive and understandable to the draft-eligible Claude, whose induction is just days away. Her voice is steady, strong and most welcome on such songs as “Easy to be Hard,” and “Good Morning Starshine.”

Tara Novie plays Sheila, the tough protest leader (the Tribe calls her “Joan of Arc”) with a vulnerable heart, and she hits every note of this complex character.

Two popular songs in the show—"Easy to Be Hard" and "Frank Mills"—are splendidly performed by, respectively, the excellent Tara Novie as Sheila and the adorable Lauren Monteleone as Crissy.

By and large, the women in the cast are the superior singers and performers, particularly Kristen Jeter's Dionne (who opens the show with a glorious "Aquarius"), Tara Novie's Sheila (who brings down the house with a powerful "Easy to Be Hard"), and Lauren Monteleone's Crissy (charmingly performing "Frank Mills").

Tara Novie as Mimi settled in nicely to the more dramatic material in Act Two and delivered a fantastic "Without You."

Tara Novie was great as Mimi hitting all the right notes between the rocking “Out Tonight” and the more subtle “Goodbye Love.”

Tara Novie and Tim Rinehart played not only primary characters, but a slew of secondary characters each more bizarre and perfectly crafted than the one before it.
