Entertaining, Cliched, Great acting, Great staging, Fluffy

See it if You like a sweet sappy story. It was well acted and staged. Carmen Cusak is delightful and seems to change ages before your eyes

Don't see it if You like a well developed book. The story is trite and the twist is obvious even from act one. The score is pleasant but feels unfinished

Great acting, Ambitious, Confusing, Disappointing

See it if You love Audra McDonald and Brian Stokes Mitchell. The cast is excellent as are the song and dance numbers.

Don't see it if You like a clear story line. I wanted to love this but the show doesn't know if it's a revival a revue or a behind the scenes musical
