Like "The Secret Garden" that gives this 1991 Broadway musical its title, the production at Cockpit in Court Summer Theatre takes a while to blossom. It has its share of vocal highlights and always remains enjoyable, but the story's powerful emotions are fitfully conveyed before finally coming across with full force at the end. The reason partly lies in the musical itself. Based on the beloved 1911 children's novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, the story concerns a 10-year-old girl, Mary Lennox, who is orphaned when her parents suddenly die in India.
