Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Delightful, Relevant

See it if you want a good all-around cast performance in a fun musical with a message. Staging, lighting and use of space well done.

Don't see it if the instrumental music drowning out soft voices cannot be tolerated - it happens a few times throughout the show as mics are rarely used.

Quirky, Romantic, Funny, Clever, Delightful

See it if Cute, lightweight sentimental musical comedy about realigning couples, with a gay twist. Fun characters, enthusiastically performed.

Don't see it if Lots of stereotypes. Little substance. Some of the performers are better than others.

Cliched, Entertaining, Clever, Well acted

See it if Gallery's bare bones revival still hits the mark mostly due to the comic timing of cast (esp Boyaggi's ascerbic mother of the bride)

Don't see it if Despite it's high brow sit-com intentions show is pleasantly entertaining. Adaquately sung (non-miked) but still needs a bit more panache

Funny, Blvd comedy edgy, Seems to fit better in non-professional venue, Worthy effort, Decent book, music, lyrics

See it if new traditional musical with family emphasis & gay twist that plays well in non-professional setting with talented cast makes U want to RSVP

Don't see it if gay issues, communityTheatre venue, mixed marriage, overbearing mothers, ineffectual fathers, wedding itself, make U want 2 decline invite

Funny, Clever, Entertaining, Romantic, Quirky

See it if you want to have some fun in the theater. This production might need some polish but the cast overcomes and a good time was had by all.

Don't see it if you want super professional Broadway quality or you don't like funny musicals.

Funny, Cliched

See it if clever,lighthearted,insightful,and humorous plot line. Acting uneven,use of some cliches and stereotypes.

“There are many surprises and reveals in ‘It Shoulda Been You,’ performed to perfection in this hilarious production at The Gallery Players. The set and the costumes are impressive and perfect for this play. The musical numbers were well-performed and the direction was spot-on. The cast was a joy to watch. I highly recommend you see it. It is one of the best shows I have seen this season.”

“This farce is one big laugh riot from beginning to end. What seemingly starts out to be tensions revolving around the wedding of a single couple evolves into a romantic triangle involving three couples! And you are constantly surprised because you have no idea where the story is heading. In the end, the contradictions and dilemmas climax in a happy, romantic resolution for all three couples and their loved ones. This musical is one you must see!”
