Great songs, Weak script, Riveting, Some enchanting, An old friend

See it if you love R&H. So wonderful to revisit SP! Altho the dialogue can be clunky and the plot annoying, I loved the songs. Topnotch performances.

Don't see it if you hate all musicals (some do...but why?) A terrific revival. O'Hara's too beautiful and bland for Nellie, but who cares? Enchanted evening Read more

Enchanting, Romantic, Epic, Exquisite, Ambitious

See it if You enjoy R&H musicals. Are a WWII history fan. Enjoy legit musicals.

Don't see it if You'd prefer to see something contemporary. You want something "light." The show is significantly heavier than other R&H musicals. Read more
