Great singing, Great acting

See it if you want to see an old-fashioned musical in an intimate setting

Don't see it if you want to see a big, lavish production. The cast works hard and their effort pays off, but it is still off-off-broadway.

Absorbing, Great acting, Masterful, Must see

See it if you want to see engrossing drama.

Don't see it if you can't sit for 2 3/4 hrs. The complaint that Scout was performed by an adult is without merit. The role is too demanding for a child.
