Entertaining, Old fashioned, Great singing, Great music, Classic

See it if you enjoy 1920's-30's music. A jukebox of beautiful tunes with many updated lyrics. A tame/safe telling of Judy's early life. Great staging.

Don't see it if you expect the bluntness and grit of the "Judy" movie. Read more

Delightful, Light, Entertaining, Interesting story, Great singing

See it if You are interested in Garland. I didn't know too much about her life before OZ so it was interesting. Loved Margherita as Ethel Gumm.

Don't see it if If you are expecting drama. Theres a tiny bit but this is a pretty lighthearted musical.

"Whether you are fans of the Judy who...went down the yellow brick road in the 1939 classic, or of the incomparable adult superstar...this delightful new musical is clearly calculated to bring waves of laughter, an occasional tear and mostly appreciative applause. It does."

"Overflowing with classic songs that are wound in and around the young MGM star's rise. it is in daddy's eyes and voice that we are being truly gifted by this musical. Max von Essen as the troubled father,..steals the show from under those Ruby shoes, giving the most nuanced portrayal on that big wide stage."
