Delightful, Funny, Fluffy, Uneven, Cute

See it if Light comedy w/plenty of song, dance & humor. Jealous queen, mute king, timid prince, spunky princess & colorful court. Strong lead actors.

Don't see it if Suitable for kids, but too long for younger kids. Weaker acting by the minor characters. I enjoyed the addition of some gender fluidity.

Disappointing, Dated, Quirky, Fluffy, Banal

See it if Not much can enliven this chestnut tuner despite Gallery team's best efforts Only shows sparks when Rosenfeld's Princess 'Fred' is on stage

Don't see it if Dated material isn't helped by Gelles' uninspired direction and lackluster choreo Ideally, piece should be souffle light not pancake flat
