Coronado is a lovely place visit. The ferry landing is only a mile or so down the road with several eateries and shops to browse. Walk around after dinner and enjoy the beautiful bay before the play.

I have seen the play many times on & off Broadway, and, of course, the movie. This production really paled next to any of them. Mainly due to the poor performance of the main character -- feeble voice, poor acting, and where'd she get that awful...

I thought the leading lady lacked energy on most of her performance. The rest of the cast was fine. Choreography lacked cohesion at times. One of the songs was like cacophony. Everyone singing at the same time but different things. Not pleasant.

Characters were well played. The chorus had a great soundvoices varied in strenghts, but over all performance was nicely done. If you need a break and want a small cozy chateu setting afternoon at the theater this is just for you.

Meet Charity Hope Valentine—dance hall hostess, eternal optimist, and unlucky romantic—as she searches for true love in this Tony award-winning musical comedy with lively choreography, snappy Neil Simon dialogue, and show-stopping numbers including such favorites as “Big Spender,” “Rhythm of Life” and “If They Could See Me Now.”

By Neil Simon
