See it if you love the great American songbook - this is where it all began! Really intelligent handling of Berlin's life and work. Well done workshop

Don't see it if The show is still in development and needs work, the theater is in bad shape as well
See it if you enjoy a story about Irving Berlin using his songs, many of which are not often heard. Mr Peterson is very talented, singing and dancing.
Don't see it if you do not like the music of Irving Berlin or do not like one person shows. Very simple set. Mr Peterson is the show.
See it if you like Berlin songs; you'll hear lots of them (a mix of known/new). You'll also see tap dancing and learn the broad outlines of IB's life.
Don't see it if you need a highly polished evening. The early preview felt a bit raw, although Peterson is talented and the songs are mostly delightful.
