WARWICK â Andrea McVetty of Warwick sat in the audience, enraptured, even enthralled, by the show unwinding in front of her. âIn this day and age, we need more of this,â she said. âWe all need more of this every day.â
âThis,â the cause of Ms. McVettyâs delight, was Ocean State Theatre Companyâs rapturous production of âMeet Me In St. Louis,â running in Warwick through Dec. 28.
âThis,â was a colorful, humorous, tuneful, splendid paean to how America once was at its best â kind to neighbors, honoring its sense of community, respectful to God, parents, strangers, and, gasp, each other.
