Delightful, Entertaining, Great acting, Must see, Romantic

See it if you enjoy an original score with wonderful singing and spectacular dancing.

Don't see it if you do not enjoy productions with racial themes. A white DJ falls in love with a black singer and brings R&B to the mainstream.

Broadway: won 5 tony awards, Montego glover ('felicia') & chad kimball ('huey'), Entertaining, Relevant, Underground clubs of the segregated 1950s

See it if I am so happy I saw this with the Orig. cast (2009) even though the show ran w/ replacements till 2012. Some casts have a magic & this DID!!

Don't see it if If U want your historical musical to contain "actual" songs from the era then U may have 2 skip it (go c MOTOWN), or racism is an issue 4u??
