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.

Great singing, Entertaining, Romantic, Great staging, Cliched

During previews
Self-indulgent, Excruciating, Misogynistic, Sophomoric, Sacharine

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.

During previews
Insipid, Disappointing, Dated, Cliched, Banal

See it if you really love Adam Kantor; you are interested in old-fashioned (in a bad way) storytelling; you like new musicals no matter what.

Don't see it if you don't have the patience for a super trite, badly-written book; you want to see complex, fleshed-out characters; alcoholism is a trigger.
