Dated, Great gershwins, Fun dancing, Uneven singing, Fluffy

See it if you want to hear some great Gershwin tunes and lyrics. The script is silly, but the songs are s'wonderful. The small stage is well used.

Don't see it if you require all-round top performers. The women are generally much stronger than the men. Still, you get a lot for your entertainment buck. Read more

Entertaining, Fluffy, Good old fashioned 20's musical

See it if You love Gershwin! This is filled with favorites! Earnest young cast, with extremely talented supporting actors. Sweet period piece.

Don't see it if you don't like an intimate house played like it was a 2000 seat theatre by the female lead. Way too much mugging! Nevertheless, great music! Read more

“‘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."
