Slow, Great singing, Banal, Cliched

See it if You like a simple story told in a familiar way. The performances are very good.

Don't see it if You need a strong central conflict. The show is sentimental but harmless.

Underwhelming, Great acting, Cute, Funny, Great singing

Throws in the kitchen sink (e.g. japanese internment camps), Squanders adult talent, Too much weight on a child actor's shoulders, Padded with unnecessary songs, Utterly ridiculous plot

See it if want to see the equivalent of a children's book w/ mediocre songs added. I feel sorry for the talented adult cast members given bad material

Don't see it if can't stomach smart-alecky child actors. 2 1/2 hours of a poorly cast, unintelligible kid who's in virtually the entire show is 2 too many Read more

"Jewish fathers and sons, anti-Semitism, the New York Giants, romance and bromance are all part of growing up in 1940 Brooklyn. A mixture that is heart-felt and gainfully processed through the entertaining new musical 'Last Days of Summer.'"
