Entertaining, Great acting, Fluffy, Romantic, Original

See it if You're a fan of the cast, Sutton especially. Music is fun, dancing is great. "Man in Chair" is a great role.

Don't see it if You're looking for something with more depth. It wasn't perfect. "Curtains," which was out around the same time, was much better.

Fun, Clever, Delightful, Enchanting, Original

See it if you're a big fan of musical theater-- this show a true love letter. It's original & very witty too.

Don't see it if you're not into light, cute shows. This can be a bit saccharine at times but in the best way possible.
