The Gay Men's Chorus of Washington's spring mainstage offering Love Is All You Need: A 1960s Extravaganza, performed last weekend at GWU’s Lisner Auditorium, gave the group plenty of room to do more than just make music. Dancing, acting, multimedia -- all were employed in full force to hearken back to one of the most distinctive decades in the American experience.

Musicianship in act one was at its highest in an appearance by the a cappella, tight-harmony ensemble Potomac Fever, performing a sparkling Dan Meyer arrangement of "The Girl from Ipanema" -- re-christened, naturally, "The Boy from Ipanema." An equally high point came as the chorus ended the act with a powerful rendition of "Bridge Over Troubled Water" featuring strong solo work from Kerry Neal.
