Great songs, Silly, Fun, Dated, Good voices

See it if you want a couple of hours of pure entertainment. Great songs well sung with a terrible script. Lots of energy on stage.

Don't see it if an outdated racist subplot will make you uncomfortable; it should be cut.The plot is ridiculous, but songs are glorious and cast likeable.

Delightful, Funny, Dated, Charming, Fluffy

See it if As long as you know this is a low budget staged reading of the classic Rogers and Hart 1937 musical, this is absolutely charming and fun.

Don't see it if You expect costumes or sets, or if actors holding scripts bothers you. But if you can go with the flow, it's a fun night with lots of talent

Fluffy, Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Clever

See it if You want to hear one of the great scores in musical theatre, featuring songs that have endured the test of time, performed with aplomb.

Don't see it if You can't get past shows that are a bit dated; don't care to see another "kids put on a show for money" story (even if this is the original)

Clever, Delightful, Funny, Great acting, Fluffy

See it if You've ever seen the original movie with Mickey Rooney and Judy garland.

Don't see it if You're not into old movies

March 10th, 2016

"A sharp, fast-paced, animated production by director/choreographer Keith Andrews in which all of the jokes land with a zing...has a great deal more going for it than one might expect...Director Andrews has taught his cast how to sell a song, and sell they do with dance moves, acting chops, and appropriate gestures, rather than the usual way of singers standing still and looking into each other’s eyes."
