Banal, Slow

See it if You want the drink included in admission. A few high energy dance numbers

Don't see it if Poor blocking and sightlines, blinding spotlights, amateurish, just under 3 hours and WAY too long. Hard to follow plot

Great singing, Great writing, Great music, Raunchy, Absorbing

See it if You want to sip cocktails and watch a jazz era party spiral out of control in rhyming dialogue and song.

Don't see it if you don't know the source material, or will be irritated by not being able to hear or see every scene, depending on your seat & the mic'ing.
