Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Cliched, Dated

See it if you'd enjoy an old-fashioned, surprisingly sweet romance that nonetheless does feel dated thanks to social norms for women during this era.

Don't see it if you're as snobby as NY theater critics. This was a terrific production w/wonderful performances, & better than many shows that outlasted it.

2015 broadway revival, Entertaining, Turn-of-the-century france (19th-20th), Disappointing, Vanessa hudgens ('gigi') & victoria clark ('mamita')

See it if The producers expected a BIG turnout from Vanessa Hudgens fans & removed the amoral parts of the story. What they needed was a smaller venue

Don't see it if If U wanted to see a nasty little tale about older men chasing much younger women then U've come to the wrong show. Here she's 18 (not 16)??

The New York Times
April 8th, 2015

"A shower of soap bubbles descends upon the audience at the finale of the pretty and pleasant revival...The current production has now been cleverly bleached of lechery... These changes smartly align the material with our more enlightened times. What the production’s creators cannot do, unfortunately, is plump up the thin story or elevate the quality of the score."

Time Out New York
April 8th, 2015

"Neither natural force nor chemistry, alas, is much in evidence at this fizzless toast to Parisian romance in the Belle Époque. Eric Schaeffer’s revival rescues the show from the dustbin of history and moves it to a recycling bin of the present...this 'Gigi' is inoffensive to a fault...It merely feels generic."

New York Theatre Guide
April 10th, 2015

"There is a positively Walt Disney quality running throughout the production...This is a 'Gigi', unfortunately, a sleight of hand production that tries to be all things to all people so that you can bring your daughters to the theatre – because in the end the gal gets her man and keeps her honor. The result is a rather bland soufflé that is too hard on the outside and too soft at the center."

New York Magazine / Vulture
April 8th, 2015

"The attempt to turn such a property into a girl-power fantasy has left it more perverted than ever, and altogether unworthy of its name...The production’s desperation to appeal to tweens instead of their parents results in a disastrous if not deliberate misreading of the painful it is, rereading the original, to see how much intelligence has been lost."

"There are no surprises, of either the negative or the especially positive sort...We were all doused with soapy Champagne bubbles at the curtain, which somehow seemed apt."

New York Daily News

"One wonders why anyone would even bother to dust off this less-than-classic 1973 work. No compelling answer emerges...Performances are all over the place...As musical gems go, 'Gigi' is not Tiffany — it’s Jared."

"The dumbed-down book and hard-bitten direction keep dragging the show back to our own thin-skinned age...Who hasn’t lost their minds in this ill-conceived adaptation? The designers, for sure, have held their own. But if the physical look of the show suggests Paris, whenever someone opens his mouth, we’re dragged back to America, where nice people don’t do naughty things."

The Hollywood Reporter
April 8th, 2015

"Lukewarm champagne...A lazy eye roll is about the most extreme reaction likely to be provoked by this pretty but charm-deficient revival in a wanly unatmospheric Belle Epoque Paris...Watching this rather mechanical reworking of 'Gigi', the suspicion arises that its weaknesses lie not only in the treatment but in the material itself, which is full of dreary patter songs that echo those from My Fair Lady but have minimal impact."
