Must see, Masterful, Great writing, Great singing, Delightful

See it if One of NYC's most assured and accomplished AC maestros pops in on B'way for a quickie residency. Strong stage command and audience bridge.

Don't see it if Those too cool for school and an aversion to Sugar Pops better to find a Sondheim cabaret act somewhere else.

Also Dad's steering the bus here and it's quite a memorable ride.Thrilling.

Don't see it if you're too cool to see what a remarkable composer/arranger/performer Barry is. He knows how to sing to a crowd as if each person is special
