Fifty years after it debuted on Broadway, Cy Coleman and Dorothy Fields' musical is revived in an intimate setting. The production features new choreography by Tony nominee Joshua Bergasse ('On the Town') and direction by Tony nominee Leigh Silverman ('Violet,' 'Well'), who brings a fresh, modern perspective to the age-old story of a woman who thinks she needs a man to save her.

See it if you love Sutton Foster or the music from the show ("Big Spender", "I'm the Bravest Individual"). Beautiful stripped down production.
Don't see it if you enjoy more modern productions or big, flashy musicals. This felt a little dated, but is worth it for Ms. Foster's portrayal of Charity.
See it if you love Sutton Foster. She is fully committed, comically gifted, and a joy to watch. The ensemble is earnest and talented, as well.
Don't see it if you find the material old/annoying. There is some relevance as women are still held to a different standard, but the purity theme is dated.
See it if you want to see Sutton be absolutly charming, and lovable as Charity. However, felt a little like a thrown together staged reading version.
