In this new musical, charismatic songwriter Harry falls for clever chorus girl Louise, and all of Manhattan glitters with the blush of new love. But what happens when the sparkling fantasy begins to dissolve? More…
From the show:
Bubbling over with charm, wit, and whimsy, Darling Grenadine navigates the tension between romance and reality, light and dark, bitter and sweet. Featuring a vibrantly eclectic score and stirring book and lyrics by Daniel Zaitchik.
See it if you’d like to see a musical with some old fashioned virtues staged in the round like an intimate floorshow.
Don't see it if graphic depictions of the chaos alcoholism introduces into a romantic relationship might upset you too much.
See it if You are curious about Roundabout's original musical. These are talented players and I liked the set and the use of the space. THE DOG.
Don't see it if you dont like cramped theaters with folding chairs within 5 feet of the action.
See it if you're up to see a new work with some good songs and interesting characters. Clever staging and projections. Small cast does great job.
Don't see it if you want big -- large cast, orchestra, scenery. This is an intimate piece in a very small (black box) theater and the audience was involved.
Also This could use some judicious cuts.
See it if you are willing to stay for the 2nd act, when the show picks up & becomes interesting.
Don't see it if you tend to leave after a so-so first act.
See it if You enjoy terrific songs grafted into a very contrived plot. Go for the music and tolerate the plot.
Don't see it if You need high production values. The show uses a few props and set pieces but uses them extremely well to serve the story.
See it if You want to see a new musical in its early stages in an intimate setting. Great performances by yet unknown talent.
Don't see it if You want to see a fully-formed musical with a true stage and any type of choreography.
See it if U enjoy love stories and human dramas. It was very silly at first but by the 2nd act I really enjoyed it. It's a bit cliched but good.
Don't see it if U don't like musicals or love stories, prefer dramas and larger productions.
See it if You’re interested in excellent ensemble work with believable characters portrayed very naturally, whose stories you like to feel invested in
Don't see it if Alcoholism triggers you or you do not care for sentimental plots or can’t imagine things that you can’t see
See it if You want to see a new playwright's work and don't mind sitting in a small theater. You don't want something splashy.
Don't see it if You don't like works that aren't quite finished. You want something big and thought provoking.
See it if you like original works in an intimate setting, clever staging, strong talent and a poignant story
Don't see it if you want a full blown broadway type production
See it if you want an intimate musical with great performances
Don't see it if you're looking for a fully polished presentation - this is definitely still a bit rough, albeit enjoyable.
See it if you want an original show w/ minimal sets & actors alone immersing you into a new world that leaves you wondering what that says about ours.
Don't see it if you want large dance numbers, a fun family show, or something light/want to avoid a show that leaves you in deep thought.
See it if You're a fan of Walton or Krebs. Great singers.
Don't see it if Mediocre saccharine music that doesn't move plot and an ending that only benefits the character's alcoholic misogynistic ego.
See it if You're interested in seeing small original musicals. The show is overly sweet (not in a good way) but I liked the more serious scenes.
Don't see it if Too much of the show is WAY too sugary sweet, to the point where it was kind of annoying. A song about Licorice? ::Eyeroll:: no thanks
See it if excellent performances. Great singing. Very enjoyable. Audience was very engaged. I really enjoyed it. Fun to see new work.
Don't see it if simple set but used very well. Play seemed long, some cuts should be made.
Also A romantic comedy that turns dark.
See it if you want to see an almost perfect chamber musical, this is it.Clever staging and a beautifully integrated book, music & lyrics.
Don't see it if you don't like small musicals in small places.
Also My only objection is its length. It needs editing.
