Great acting, Great singing, Funny, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if you’re in the mood for an appealing comedy with heart. Sam Tutty and Dijonna Gift are winning leads steering this entertaining ship.

Don't see it if you’d be very disappointed if the first act is much stronger than the second. Read more

Fresh, Quirky, Feel good, Cute

See it if you’d like a new light rom-com musical. The characters, book and lyrics are nicely on contemporary side.
