Refreshing, Intelligent, Great writing, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if you love Bock & Harnick, enjoy classic musicals, enjoy sets done effectively with little, or just want a fun show to kick off autumn.

Don't see it if if you need all the usual bells and whistles for a show to work for you. The tickets are cheap, and you get more than you pay for. Read more

Dated, Entertaining, Funny, Delightful, Great singing

See it if You want to see a seldom-produced musical by Harnick & Bock. Material a bit dated, but performances were delightful, sparkling & energetic.

Don't see it if You require a full blown production; sets, costumes are minimal. I adore Musicals Tonight & its mission to revive little-known musicals.

Entertaining, Great acting, Fluffy, Refreshing, Funny

See it if you like to see under-performed old classic musicals, you enjoy seeing young talent, you don't mind very low budget productions.

Don't see it if you want nice costumes, sets and lighting. This is a bare-bones, somewhat ratty looking but quite charming and well-performed show.

Entertaining, Refreshing

See it if you want to experience the 1966 Brock and Harnick Tony winner for Barbara Harris and be pleasantly entertained by 3 musical one acts.

Don't see it if you desire a musical with a compelling plot and knock 'em out songs.

Clever, Dated, Simple staging, Low production values, Great fun

See it if you enjoy Harnick&Bock. 3 short stories=90 min of fun. Talented Savannah Frazier steals the show! Silly, fluffy, engaging, funny, tuneful.

Don't see it if you want a full prodctn. Men aren't at Frazier's level. Some attitudes are outdated. Still Harnck's words are clever, Boch's music memorable Read more

“Part of the problem is the lack of innovation in Ray Roderick's staging in this show which calls out for invention and clever handling of sets and props. Devin Vogel's colorless stage design (making use mainly of a ladder in the first and third stories) and Hope Salvan's equally colorless costumes for most of the show (pale grey and blue tee-shirts and jeans for the first one-act) do not help bring any atmosphere to the three separate stories.”
