Escapism, Fluffy, Julie fans abound, Goofy charm, Entertaining

See it if you love JA. Not deep bio, but some greatest hits. Young tries hard, but is a bit manic, esply in audience interaction. Consciously cheesy.

Don't see it if you want JA's singing voice. Young has a nice quality, but is pitchy. Many meh jokes. Still, gd-natured; silly sing-along chases away blues.

Cabaret style, Excruciating sound design, High energy performance, Insipid, Disappointing

See it if You are an uber Andrews fan.

Don't see it if Mediocre singing will wreck it for you.

Also Bio plot meets cabaret-style audience interaction. You might find it f... Read more Read less

Slow, Great acting

See it if You want to watch a talented, funny performer share her love for Julie Andrews.

Don't see it if You're not a superfan of Andrews - the show moves slow and lacks punch.

Slow, Fluffy, Disappointing

See it if You like hearing well known Julie Andrews trivia as banter between mediocre singing of her songs.

Don't see it if You want something new or fresh. The singing is mediocre and the piano player has more charisma than the leading lady.

Very enjoyable fluff

See it if Sarah-Louise Young tells Andrews' life story & sings through her repertoire, w/ "cameos" of a host of others besides. Clever.

Don't see it if you don't like Broadway musicals, Julie Andrews or cabaret type shows.

Also This was entertaining, complete with singing-along (which I always enj... Read more Read less

Great writing, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You enjoy learning about Julie Andrews by an enthusiastic, talented musical cast of two

Don't see it if You want to hear songs from beginning to end. (Only portions of songs were sung, which was a bit bothersome.)

Not this dame, Banal, Entertaining, Clever

See it if Cabaret homage to The Dame Andrews from youth star to tragic end of vocal career.Empathy for singer's passion in delivery and comfort level.

Don't see it if Every homage invites comparison.We all love our larger-than-life screen stars,because they are unreachable in their talent, but here, sadly.

Also Title is pun of film "Truly, Madly, Deeply," and nothing more. Final e... Read more Read less

Excruciating, Disappointing, Banal, Way too long, Vanity project featuring a singer with a so-so voice

See it if you are a fan of Julie Andrews or if you like overlong cabaret shows. This is nothing more than a vanity project for Sarah-Louise Young.

Don't see it if you do not like cabaret shows or if you are not a fan of Julie Andrews.

Charming, Sincere, Enchanting, Entertaining

See it if you love Julie and want to learn about her life and history. Ms. Young is working hard on that stage, full of energy and eager to please.

Don't see it if You're Julie-ed out, or if you don't enjoy cabaret.

Also This show is part of the Brits on Broadway series at 59E59, and I've f... Read more Read less

Best if you like julie andrews, Great stories, Great singing, Delightful

See it if you'd enjoy an homage to Julie Andrews. Excellent performance. Great voice. She really sells every song. A bit too much audience banter

Don't see it if ... you don't like Julie Andrew's songs from theater and films.

Julie loudly

See it if Any showcase of songs Julie Andrews made famous suits you.

Don't see it if When any performer takes on a role made famous by someone else a comparison is inevitable. The low-end cabaret-styled show in the small

Also theatre at 59E59 does not live up to its cheery title or colorful mark... Read more Read less

Cliched, Indulgent, Banal, Insipid, Disappointing

See it if You litho I you’d like to hear about the career of Julie Andrews but don’t mind amateurish writing and acting.

Don't see it if You expect a good, well written and performed play about a very famous and talented star.

"Young is a charming, audience-friendly performer and singer, all right, but she decidedly isn't Julie Andrews. So don't go expecting something like one of those touring tribute bands that emulate the real thing. What defines her show is a complete eschewing of pretense as she shares biographical...

"You needn’t be as big of a fan as Young—frankly, I don’t think anyone is—in order to appreciate her 110-minute musical tribute...Though she sings beautifully (her 'Feed the Birds' is gorgeous), Young doesn’t sing like Andrews and she doesn’t try; all she has is as an undying admiration for the s...

"Somewhere between a tribute and a cabaret show, 'Julie Madly Deeply' is a hardcore fan's presentation of songs made popular by Julie Andrews as well as anecdotes about Andrews' life. The charming Sarah-Louise Young isn't trying to impersonate Andrews--nor does she--as much as she becomes a fan p...

"It is this modesty and good-humor that makes Young almost as attractive as the subject of her show...Young is also a gifted actress and mime. Her warmth establishes an almost immediate liaison with the audience. And 59e59's Theater B provides all the intimacy this show needs...She is such a natu...
