My husband and I saw this show for his 30th birthday. We both thought it was absolutely hilarious. We loved how the same actor played so many roles, it added so much to the comedy.

Didn't make it to intermission. Not funny. Songs were at best childish. Jokes were trite. The acting contrived. And mostly the nasal falsetto voices drove me batty.

This was my first Broadway experience so I was unsure of what to expect. I was blown away by the singing and acting talents of all the stars, an entertaining yet simple story made for a great afternoon!

Marvelously enjoyable evening. Ok. So it may be only an inch deep, but it is miles wide in terms of humor and singing. Loved it.

This was charmingly done. The music was tuneful and thank God the sound wasn't amplified to a level higher than any human would ever require as is the practice in a lot of modern-day musicals. The actors were all superb and the sets were most...More

I found the seat pretty cramped and I'm a 5'8" 135 lb woman. I made reference to this in my first review of this good show.
