Great singing, Disappointing, Dated, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if You like hearing bits of some favorite oldies, some a little less known. You don't need a storyline and are fond of musical reviews.

Don't see it if You expect perfection. Some off notes and cast members that just weren't up to par with the rest. No replacements that night. Just ok.
