Great staging, Fluffy, Great set design, 1950's-esque

See it if you enjoy the zany musicals of Comden and Green, or others from the 1950s. The set design is evocative of that time, and direction is great

Don't see it if You cannot suspend your disbelief for the sake of an entertaining evening.

Also This piece seems to try to combine the charm of romantic comedies from... Read more Read less

Sweet, Entertaining, Cliched, Fluffy, Romantic

See it if you like sweet - albeit sometimes predicable - musical comedy.

Quirky, Fluffy, Funny, Cliched, Entertaining

See it if you're up for a light show with a predictable plot that doesn't take itself too seriously; it's fun

Don't see it if you are expecting deep, serious theater that will lead to a meaningful discussion; the score sometimes fails to blend with the vocals

Don't tarry. cast can parry!

See it if Lovely leading lady. Cowling is darling. Four leads quite charming. Dance number would have been nice.

Don't see it if Village Voices chorus too intrusive. Horrible costumes to boot. Very injudiciously used throughout.

Also Highly underrated show. Not memorable, but a fun night out.

Clever, Delightful, Funny, Refreshing, Entertaining

See it if you enjoy a lighthearted romp about young love in the East Village as imagined by a true romantic. The cast is charming.

Don't see it if you're looking or a big Broadway type of musical. At 80 minutes is just long enough.

75
Dated, Cute, sweet

See it if you like your entertainment light. A cute Rom-Com, there's nothing new here, but it's a pleasant way to pass the time.

Don't see it if you want something more than a pleasant one act musical. It's as light as a feather; nothing memorable but a nice time while you're there.

Banal, Cliched, Dated, Insipid

See it if Decent performances and borderline-catchy tunes aren't enough to bolster a cringeworthy, derivative book which lacks an iota of originality.

Don't see it if A hackneyed romantic comedy structure and lack of character development renders the main relationship implausible, if not laughable.

Also This show might've played well at Kutsher's in 1962, or at Del Boca Vi... Read more Read less

Promising,, Great songs, Frustrating

See it if You want to see a new musical on the cusp of greatness. Excellent songs and staging, some wonderful performances, but it needs work.

Don't see it if The stupid plot is going to ruin the night for you. The book needs work to make this a cohesive musical.

Delightful, Refreshing

See it if You like musicals with some really good singing and some funny lines. Cute show

"The plot is one-note...Still, this production is fairly family-friendly...The show has welcome touches of whimsy...Jennifer Robbins’s book, Michael Biello’s lyrics and Dan Martin’s music have moments of wit, but mostly each song has one simplistic statement to make...In 'Newly Wed,' Francine is ...

"The idea of a romance between two young people who are overly tied to their single parents is a decent jumping-off point, but Robbins' book is so slapdash that one quickly grows tired of these people and their contrived problems. That 'Marry Harry' is meant to be a light entertainment is no excu...
