Confusing, Quirky, Cliched, Banal

See it if Intermittent good acting. It was frustrating because I knew that all involved were better than the play.

Don't see it if The writing is plodding. It is based on the device of an advice columnist's letter and how they reveal her life.

Don't see it if I can't really think of a reason not to see this. What, are you nuts?

Cliched, Dated, Fluffy

See it if You would see Carol Kane in anything and if you love Randy Rainbow. The male lead was also very good. Good dancing and voices, but dated.

Don't see it if This is a creaky Berlin musical. I wished for the Merman or Daly version and was not bowled over. I'm glad I saw it as an historical piece

71

Enchanting, Dated, Cliched, Great singing, Thought-provoking

See it if You love great choreography, dance and singing. The songs are classics of musical tbeater.

Don't see it if You tend to over think the themes and meaning of older musicals. When seen through today's lens, the story doesn't hold up to scrutiny.

84

73
Funny, Fluffy, Great singing

See it if This is not really a musical. It is more of a staged group of songs about the days of Tammany Hall and immigration.
