Entertaining, Ambitious, Great acting, Great singing, Great staging

See it if you like big cast musical rom-com based on a fairy tale w/ a twist. Full of laughs & impressive staging for a small theater. Very promising

Don't see it if going to Brooklyn is a hassle but the 45 min. train from midtown & the ticket price is still worth it for the entertainment value at hand.

Funny, Great acting, Entertaining, Quirky, Charming

See it if you'd like a lighthearted fractured fairy tale with charming, vividly painted characters and catchy tunes. Great cast, staging, and music.

Don't see it if you like more serious drama. Or if you absolutely need comfortable chairs, because you won't find them in this theater. Read more

Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Dated, Fluffy

See it if You want an enthusiastic cast performing a charmingly old-fashioned musical. You like fractured fairytales. You enjoy musical comedy.

Don't see it if You prefer more contemporary musicals. You want a serious story. You prefer big production values. You don't want to travel to Brooklyn.
