When her tightly wound conservative daughter and her sweet rebellious granddaughter arrive from Oklahoma, the sparks fly as one family seeks to find the common ground in their different values, dreams and goals. A heartfelt and comic story that celebrates diversity and acceptance, 'Unexpected Joy' weaves folk-rock, pop, and blues in bringing together a family that hasn’t experienced true joy together for decades.
See it if Nice singing but the show lost me by the forced and poorly delivered message. The young daughter had a nice voice. (See tell us more)
Don't see it if You want an elaborate show with a compelling story. This isn't that. Note: my wife and I disagreed on this one.
See it if you are up to just another one average musical with no sparkle, creativity or imagination. The acting is forced , the voices average.
Don't see it if I wouldn’t recommend to spend your time on this one. It doesn’t deliver anything new or will touch you in any way. Boring.
See it if Don't bother, tho the music is fun and the singing is excellent, the plot is just not . . .
Don't see it if way too heavy handed for a general audience
