Excruciating, Dull, Tedious, Disappointing

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.

Dated, Excruciatingly slow

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. Read more

Resonant, Romantic, Refreshing, Enchanting, Delightful

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

Wonderful costumes, Romantic, Great staging, Entertaining, Clever

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.

Slow, Poor staging, Disappointing

See it if you didn't see the original nor the 2003 Encores revival.

Don't see it if you are hoping to see an obscure musical theater gem emerge. Read more

"Deidre Goodwin Directs/Choreographs Richard Rodgers' Ambitious And Daring 'NO STRINGS'"

"While 'No Strings,' set in the Paris world of high fashion and the French watering holes of the very rich, would need a much more lavish staging to do it justice, Deidre Goodwin's production does have its charms though the show's book...seems particularly thin by today's standards."
