Intimate like a floorshow, Old fashioned, Warm, Some holes in the book

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. Read more

Great writing, Thought-provoking, Great staging, Delightful, Clever

See it if you like musicals that have a real story to tell, aren't all flash & hoopla.This is a gem.Less is more.Cast is uniformly excellent.

Don't see it if you want yet another revival of Showboat.This quiet musical is a love letter to NY, to honesty in relationships, to love itself.

"Director Michael Berresse has staged it in the round, and Matt Moisey's orchestrations (piano, bass, guitar) let the lyrics come through clearly. The music is tuneful and outstandingly performed."
