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 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.
"A Retro Cocktail With Little Kick: Roundabout Underground presents a flawed but tuneful musical about a young Manhattan couple challenged by addiction."
"A songwriter and a Broadway chorus performer struggle with relationship issues in Daniel Zaitchik's romantic musical receiving its New York premiere."
"'Darling Grenadine' Is Deadly Saccharine
It's the cutest little musical about alcoholism you ever will see."
4/5 Stars. "Newcomer Daniel Zaitchik writes honest-to-goodness songs, with melody, humor, and musical comedy know-how."
"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."
