Delightful, Funny, Breezy, Clever, Great songs

See it if This 1953 Leonard Bernstein/Comden & Green musical really holds up - funny, sharp, terrific music & lyrics. Cast is obviously having a ball.

Don't see it if This is a low budget, staged reading with absolutely minimal sets and costumes; as long as you're okay with this you'll have a blast!

Enchanting, Entertaining, Great acting

See it if You'd like to see how NYC in the 1950's were like in a light, fun way.

Don't see it if You're only into contemporary works.

"The 1953 Bernstein score retains its effervescence and charm, as well as presaging music to come from him in future years...While Pappas’ production is a delightful throwback to a more innocent time, it is guilty of some odd choices...'Wonderful Town' is one of those musical comedies which seem to get better as they age...Director Evan Pappas has given the Musicals Tonight! revival a bright, breezy, high-spirited production that is certain to put a smile on your face."

"This lively production features the talents of director Evan Pappas, whose keen eye for character turns and aesthetic arrangements, even when his cast just poses, serve to entertain and enhance, and choreographer Antoinette DiPietropolo, whose work is buoyant. It also features an unusual cavalcade of good actors having fun with smaller roles...The musical itself is a romp and there are so many unexpectedly nifty moments, I found myself smiling almost throughout the whole piece."
