From the show:

Songs include: “The Sweetest Sounds,” “No Strings,” and “Nobody Told Me.”
See it if you want to spend 2 hours in the theatre in order to hear one good song and its reprise.Cast was WAY too large for the small set.Good choreo
Don't see it if you are looking for anything other than a college or community production.Acting was uneven, with a few good performances.Good costumes.
See it if you want to see a Rodgers' show for which he also wrote lyrics. This may be your last chance to catch this one.
Don't see it if you want an enjoyable night out, or if you have no interest in Rodgers or Broadway in the 60s.
See it if you want to see a rarely presented piece with surprisingly hefty undertones
Don't see it if a weak leading man will dull your enjoyment or you expect to walk out singing the songs
See it if you enjoy a top-notch production of an historic if problematic show. Very well-staged that reflects the style of the original.
Don't see it if You prefer "revivals" that fight against the intent of the creators.
