Great singing, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You want to see great performances/singing especially by Beth Malone. Neat sets on a tight budget. A true story told in dance and song.

Don't see it if True stories aren’t your thing. If you want to see a fun show off the beaten path. Colorblind casting.

See it if you like "old-fashioned" musicals or shows based on historic people (I love both!): this was a real treat with incredible singing & dancing!

Don't see it if you are not interested in the life of Molly Brown and are willing to miss a show which gives the feeling of being performed on Broadway. Read more

The New York Times
February 26th, 2020

"‘The Unsinkable Molly Brown’ Has Its Ups and Ups: A 'revisal' of a Meredith Willson musical has a strong female lead who doesn’t quit, and her unrelenting energy makes for a static production."

3/5 Stars "A feminist-forward enchanting...The book scenes often feel sluggish. You wait impatiently for Malone and the talented company to start singing and dancing again. When they do, this new 'Molly Brown' doesn’t just sail, it soars."

"It is now the most conscientious musical you've ever seen…an enormous amount of effort, some of it effective, has been expended on a show that might not really merit so much loving attention."

Talkin' Broadway

"It pales in comparison with the composer/lyricist's near-perfect 'The Music Man.' Sadly, the 2020 version, which should be called 'Willson and Scanlan's The Unsinkable Molly Brown,' no matter how fervently it persists, does not raise the show in artistic merit."

4/5 Stars. "The Meredith Willson musical has been completely retooled, but its old-fashioned charms are still very much intact."
