Cramped, Delightful, Romantic, Great singing, Dated

See it if The World, The Wall, and Callow Love. The three leads have excellent vocals.Try to remember the number of times you've seen this one.

Don't see it if Not politically correct, but that's the show, folks. Casio back-up. Postage-stamp-sized space, whereby the stage cuts into all of 22 seats. Read more

Great writing, Great singing, Dated, Great acting, Enchanting

See it if you love intimate productions, you are not resistant to sentimentality, you like age old stories,

Dizzying, Fluffy, Great singing, Slow, Romantic

Don't see it if You do not like extremely (unnecessarily) long shows, sitting in a very uncomfortable plastic chair, cramped, intimate theater Read more

Delightful, Dated, Confusing, Great singing

See it if You already like the show and want to see an energetic cast give it their all.

Don't see it if You are bothered by being extremely up close to the actors, you are in the mood for a relevant show.

Delightful, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if It is such an enjoyable evening to see this classic Musical. Actors are working hard and you get to sing along the famous song at the end.

Don't see it if You don’t like the intimate theatre of maybe 20 audiences, and felt like watching the Performance in private living room.
