Banal, Cliched, Confusing, Disappointing

See it if I dunno. See it if they fixed plot from when it played at Papermill. Ending was awful. I guess if you like that era you might like it...

Don't see it if You are expecting to hear something you know. You like to sing the songs when you leave. You don't care about plot.

Also This review is based on a performance I saw at the Papermill playhouse
