Delightful, Dated, Great staging, Terrific dancing, Fluffy

See it if you need an antidote to debates, if you love Gershwin, if you want to see how much magic can be wrought on a tiny stage with talented folks.

Don't see it if The charm and simplicity of old musicals completely eludes you, or if helicopters, falling chandeliers or bad language are necessary. Read more

Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Fluffy, Dated

See it if Kudos to "Musicals Tonight" for this superb, delightful musical revival. Cast is bursting with talent & enthusiasm - great singing & dancing

Don't see it if You need a full blown set & effects; there are none, tho costumes are great. This is theatre on a shoestring budget, but oh how it shines!

Funny, Great singing, Great dancing, Old fashioned

See it if you like shows that feature songs and dances of the 1920s and musicals that are a little sappy but fun.

Don't see it if you are expecting to see a re-creation of the movie. They are not related except for a few songs.

“‘Funny Face’ for Musicals Tonight! is everything one could have wished in a 1920’s musical comedy revival. While the show’s book requires a good deal of suspension of disbelief, it goes with the territory of early musical comedies, but allows for the memorable Gershwin score. This is a terrific example of the musicals intended for the tired businessman back in the Roaring Twenties. The uncredited glamourous costumes also give the show a very smart, chic period look.”

"Producer and creator of Musicals Tonight!, Mel Miller, and his cohorts have put together a buoyant version of the piece helmed by director/choreographer Casey Colgan of whom I am now a serious fan...With this production, the organization has reached a new high...Everyone is cute without being saccharine. This is a cohesive company accurately representing a period show while having an infectiously good time."
