Darling Grenadine
Midtown W
Quirky, Great singing, Cliched, Entertaining

See it if you want an intimate musical with great performances

Quirky, Great singing, Funny, Absorbing, Entertaining

See it if you love a classic feel to a musical (think Music Man, Thoroughly Modern Millie, My Fair Lady vibes) with great performances all around.

Don't see it if you're looking for a huge production value - it's pretty stripped down. Or if you don't like a historical show.

Must see, Refreshing, Ambitious

See it if you want to see a truly reimagined version of a classic musical with edgy choreography and more relevant themes.

See it if you're looking for great acting. Marisa Tomei was quite good, and the supporting cast lived up to her star power, with solid performances

Don't see it if you're looking for a show with a lot of action. It can be a bit slow moving and at times makes no sense, but was oddly enthralling.

Entertaining, Slow, Overrated, Dated, Great singing

See it if you're a fan of jukebox musicals. This is one of the better ones out there.
