Seamless, extraoadinary storytelling from the writer and star.

See it if you love great storytelling told with seemingly effortless panache, wit and exuberance. Winning!

Tough, probing, funny work!

Revolutionary! everything you've heard is true.

See it if Groundbreaking. Challenges the way you see and hear musicals. I was pretty familiar with the score but was enthralled with the choreography.

Don't see it if you can't afford it. I could buy subscriptions to seasons for the price paid and next time I will.

A rarely performed classic that's too clean and misses some of the humor.

See it if you want to see a solid production which is incongruously (but entertainingly) accompanied by a jazz trio. Needs its corners knocked off.

Don't see it if you need something to happen in the first act. Derives much of its power from the implied shock of the period in which it was written.
