Sacrifices of the revolutionary

See it if You are a Stockard Channing fan, you won’t be disappointed. Plus, I love this theater; it’s so comfortable.

Don't see it if You don’t have patience enough to get through a highly dramatic, unresolved and long first act. The play really doesn’t come together until

Also The last 5 minutes. Its something of an endurance run.

Don't see it if Like me you don’t have much tolerance for silly

Didn’t lose beat, gave it away

See it if you’ve never been to a Broadway musical before and have absolutely zero expectations.

Don't see it if translating the GoGo’s music to production numbers was a serious error in judgment. The book is awful, predictable, dull, banal. I was so

Also disappointed.
