A best musical?

Without “Show Boat,” there might not be musical theater the way we know it today, and Asolo Repertory Theatre’s intimate yet sumptuous production gave cause for celebrating it anew. But it was the new musical “Hero,” which came toward the end of the season, that brought me back four times. The creators made some changes during its run in Sarasota (hence my repeated visits), and each time I was cast under a spell by stars Brian Sears, Laurie Veldheer and Matt Mueller, and Michael Mahler’s charming, tune-filled score. I hope we haven’t seen the end of “Hero.”
