Great staging, Intense, Riveting, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if Of courage Dinklage is amazing but so is the choreography. The acting is super from top to bottom. I cried thru most of the final section.

Emotionally-effective work, Immersive, Touching, Simple songs with mostly beautiful voices (and some inconsistencies), Romantically-presented

Don't see it if you want a straight play or straight musical: this combines both, with weak lyrics and homogenous music that's nonetheless gorgeous in tone. Read more

3/5 Stars "It’s hard to fall in love with this confounding production...Schmidt has excised all the poetry...Most of the full-fledged numbers stop the show dead in its tracks...Yet Dinklage makes you care...Schmidt has elicited a captivating performance from this wonderfully expressive actor."
