Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Great staging, Original

See it if You like a unique experience with delightful characters told witha bit of audience participation. Excellent and delightful. Laughed a lot.

Don't see it if You want Rogers and Hammerstein. Music isn't big and overly memorable. Great intimate experience instead.
