See it if you want to see a revival of a lost musical from the 1970's. Great score by Cy Coleman and witty lyrics by Dorothy Fields.
Don't see it if you want to see a larger-than-life musical performed on a small stage.
See it if if you're interested in Broadway shows from that era, or just Cy Coleman in general. This is RARELY done--not great but worthy.
Don't see it if you're expecting a full production or if you have already seen a good version of this. It's done on a very small stage.
See it if You like the show and the music but some of the best numbers are missing. Great choreography beautifully performed.
Don't see it if You want to see a great big musical. However, you will be seeing many of these young actors in the future. They are great.
See it if you enjoy rediscovering forgotten musicals that deserve to be remembered. Young, talented cast. Strong story.
Don't see it if you prefer very elaborate productions. Are only interested in rewritten musicals where the director "knows best"
See it if you want to see a classic musical that could have been given a crisper revival.
Don't see it if stereotypes annoy you - gay actors, whiny Jewish women, charmless out-of-towners.
See it if ...you are fan of old musicals that aren't often produced and a cast of first-rate young actors. Second act musical numbers are well done.
Don't see it if if you like big splashy shows with big sets. The physical production is done with a shoe-string budget and it shows.
