Intelligent, Great acting, Great singing

See it if A stripped down version with great heart, performances, and voices. A masterpiece by Sondheim simply done.

Don't see it if Note: only accompanied by an excellent pianist. Refugee camp idea? Fuggeddabouddit. Everyone forgot it anyway.

Clever, Great acting, Great singing, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if For a small local production, this was a very pleasant surprise. Great singing and story. Sondheim classic.

Don't see it if You don't like Sondheim or are looking for a big Broadway production. I didn't care for the staging, they didn't use the stage???

Delightful, Great singing, Great acting

See it if you want to see an excellent cast that can really sing perform a classic musical with minimal staging.

Don't see it if you mind a theme that doesn't add anything, some nontraditional doubling of roles or will miss a lack of orchestration (single piano score). Read more

Ambitious, Great staging, Relevant, Entertaining, Great writing

See it if You want to see a solid cast, w/a few standouts, handle a difficult musical well. You like intimate staging. You like clever, smart writing.

Don't see it if You expect a non-traditonal Woods. Despite the refugee "look", it's a straightforward production. You want a prettier fairytale setting... Read more

Great singing, Entertaining, Quirky, Clever, Great acting

See it if you enjoy good music and acting by a talented group performing this well-known musical in a new bare-bones setting with great lighting.

Don't see it if only piano accompaniment for this musical would detract-sometimes some singers are hard to hear above it. You expect a full set & props.
