Simple script, Simple production (set, costumes), Simple songs (music, lyrics), Well acted/sung, Simple staging

See it if you like pared-down, straight forward shows. Once has no bells & whistles, but the characters are well-drawn and the music is pleasant.

Don't see it if you want something sophisticated or lavish. Probably better in an intimate setting; too small a show for Broadway. A quiet pleasure. Read more

Overrated, Slow, Disappointing, Banal, Great singing

See it if you like unrequited love stories. Folk music.

Don't see it if you like plots that make sense.
