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.
