Delightful, Entertaining, Great writing, Great acting, Great singing

See it if you appreciate the triple talents of a cast in telling the personal story of an award winning lyricist w/ good direction and choreography.

Don't see it if you cannot enjoy a musical on a small stage with a limited set and a small orchestra.

Sentimental, Refreshing, Great writing, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You missed the 2001 production, or are interested to see an obscure (read: flop) musical written by a supremely overlooked composer.

Don't see it if You dislike small, sentimental shows that seem like they are made for Broadway insiders.

Great singing, Great staging, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you like musical theater. Some terrific performances & a great score. Extra enjoyable for theater buffs who will recognize real people.

Don't see it if theater has to be big for you to enjoy it. Much to be said for intimate performances with unamplified sound in a small space.

Great writing, Moving, Absorbing, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if you like forgotten "gems." A lovely look at Kleban with an excellent book that uses his songs well. Small cast really clicks; I loved it.

Don't see it if you prefer large-scale productions. This is simple, bare-bones on a tiny stage. But it works great. The book and Kleban's songs really shine

Entertaining, Sentimental, Great writing

See it if you want to see & hear a musical theatre talent in a 1st class revival that lets the production simply be The Show; very moving!!

Don't see it if you need a splashy production. Or a bio-musical.
