Slow, Gentle, Bland, Good singing, Nostalgic

See it if Solo singer/guitarist does a revue of Simon songs with biographical comments. Older audience of Paul Simon fans loved it.

Don't see it if I found it soothing but dull. One lonely ballad after another, without much humor, drama or excitement. Hot stuffy theater.
