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.

“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.”
