Absorbing, Great songs, Great staging, Intelligent, Resonant

See it if you love Sondheim. It's a gift to hear the songs in context. A touching play about life choices. Some grand spectacle, too.

Don't see it if you want perfect casting. BPeters was a disappointment. She couldn't sing the role and I found her acting stiff. Lots of other talent, tho. Read more

Don't see it if you don't like musicals.

Ambitious, Entertaining, Great acting, Great singing, Delightful

See it if You want to see a 1st rate, scaled down production of the Sondheim classic performed, staged & directed professionally, all which deserve a+
