Disappointing, Interesting staging, Quirky, Slow, Ambitious

See it if You want to support community theater or know someone in the cast. Or really love the play.

Don't see it if You want to be able to HEAR anything, the acoustics were terrible. The play was slow and at times stilted.

Low energy & pace, Community theatre, Inaudible at times, Some excellent voices, Seems actors costumed themselves

See it if you want a community theatre level [talent, design, intention] of a Sondheim classic, sound & lyrics elude the proceedings at times

Don't see it if you need your Sondheim well produced, cast & directed, or if you don't like Sondheim or musicals Read more

Community theater, mixed results

See it if you care to support a dedicated community theater troupe. Spotty performances, some quite good. At times, hard to hear in such a large space

Don't see it if you want a polished production of a Sondheim classic.

Nostalgic, Cliched, Dated, Great singing, Disappointing

See it if you appreciate legendary Sondheim scores, including numbers popular today, or are nostalgic about your middle age single life in NYC

Don't see it if you dislike long musicals with minimal sets or stereotyping an attractive single white and white collar NYC male unable to commit to a woman

Entertaining, Great score, Slow, Ambitious, Great staging

See it if you've never seen a live version and/or enjoy community theatre, offbeat theatre locales or have never been inside St Bart's Church.

Don't see it if you're expecting a full-blown production, have trouble hearing or don't like echoing church acoustics or concert vesrsions of shows Read more

Enjoyable, fun, great music

See it if you want to see a production of a great musical given it's all by a decent cast who work hard to perform with limited resources.

Don't see it if you are looking for a Broadway style production performed by semi professionals who do a decent job in a difficult environment.

72
Uneven, Relevant, Great writing

See it if you are willing to give an off-off Broadway production a chance. The material is great but the execution is inconsistent.

Don't see it if you don't like Sondheim's work or want a Broadway caliber show. There are some standout performances in the cast.

Entertaining, Quirky, Fluffy, Ambitious

See it if you're open to well-intentioned community theater & talent mix of hits & misses— Bobby & Marta are hits, & are (like me) a Sondheim newbie.

Don't see it if need excellent acoustics (faulty mics made actors unintelligible at times) & visibility, or demand uniformly strong performances.
