Dated, Cliched, Banal, Disappointing, Insipid

See it if You want to complete your knowledge of Styne's/Comden's/Green's oeuvre, or have the patience of a saint.

Don't see it if You have seen musicals in the past few decades, since they will all make this look like a pale imitation, even if this was original in 1960

Entertaining

See it if You want to see a staged concert of a rarely seen semi-semi-classic musical from the 60's full of fun tunes & just want to have some fun.

Don't see it if you're expecting a full orchestra & super-professional fully staged show.

"The Damon Runyan characters seem inauthentic...While this is the show that introduced the hit 'Make Someone Happy,' most of the Styne/Comden and Green songs sound like second-rate versions of their greater efforts…Moran and Daniel work too hard to deliver on the comedy…Director Donald Brenner keeps the pace fluid though he is unable to solve the problems of the show…A solid revival without appreciably increasing the reputation of this rarely seen show."

"It contains one timeless ballad, two somewhat amusing girl group songs, one successful tongue-in-cheek number, and one comic soliloquy. Otherwise the material is tuneless and verbose. The game company does manage to deliver some entertainment, however...Patrick John Moran deserves better material...The best voice on the stage belongs to Beth DeMichele...Director Donald Brenner’s high spots are two terrific girl group numbers with very cool synchronized movement."

"'Do Re Mi' has never been a favorite title of mine, but its exuberant, lively rendering at Mel Miller’s Musicals Tonight! helps explain why so many musical theater fans cherish it. It’s a solid, satirical mid-century, second-drawer title, nimbly spoofing the then-current jukebox payola scandals...This 'Do Re Mi' is bare-bones and imperfect. But if you want a funny, tuneful example of mid-century masters having a great, inconsequential time? Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have a winner."
