Fun, Entertaining, Great singing, Great staging

See it if Great production. Great story & singing. Fun & entertaining.

Don't see it if There's just some "je nais sais quoi" missing. The songs are very good and move the plot along but are a bit long and not really memorable.

Funny, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy musical comedies with lots of dancing. Solid production values and entire cast is very good.

Don't see it if While I enjoyed this show there are times when the story drags. It needs to be trimmed. It’s also missing an X factor.

Funny, Great dancing, Great singing, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You’re in the mood for a good old fashioned musical. This one very loosely based on the movie updated in just the right ways for todays eye.

Don't see it if You’re looking for deep profound insight or drama. This is a lot of corny jokes, fabulous dancing, door slamming hijinx in glitter/feathers.

Great music, Great staging, Great singing, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you like a very good take on the original movie. The music, singing, and staging are great. Wonderful costumes and dance numbers.

Don't see it if you don't like musicals or just want to remember the movie version. There is a very substantial change in Daphne character. Read more

Great staging, Delightful, Joyous, Great writing, Entertaining

See it if You love Golden Age musicals. Even though this is new, it feels like a classic. Wonderful, memorable music, terrific choreography.

Don't see it if You dislike big, bright, shiny, lively musicals.

Relevant, Quirky, Resonant, Refreshing, Entertaining

See it if you’re curious to see how a classic story gets modernized for the 21st century, or you just love Casey Nicholaw’s style.

Don't see it if you’re a film purist. This version includes themes of gender identity and race (but they’re developed well).
