Banal, Disappointing, Slow, Quirky, Confusing

See it if you want to support those involved with this production. There is some good singing and the cast is busy throughout using a decent set.

Don't see it if if you are bothered by lots of scenes, hard to hear most of the cast, do not like a preachy script, runs almost two hours, not 90 minutes!
