Didn't realize this was a musical until we got there. Wasn't sure what it would be like, but it was very entertaining. The performances were wonderful.

The performance was overall very good. Both the leads are very talented and some good supporting work by the rest of the cast. The play did drag a little, there were about 3-4 too many songs that sounded similar and did nothing for the plot.

A litle disappointing by Circle Theatre standards, and I've seen many Circle shows. A lot of operatic-type sustained singing, as opposed to eclectic musical theatre choices. There's a dynamic missing throughout: it claims to be based on the 30s...continued

Meh. A high school production, if your high school had no money for sets and lacked singing talent. At 2 1/2 hours is interminable.

The play itself was decent, but all the voices were absolutely fantastic. I'm not used to a performance where there isn't at least one weak link. For that reason, I would definitely recommend this play.

Overall the performance was good, but some of the songs felt extraneous and the music was not very memorable.

Nice production in quaint theater that's always enjoyable. Too bad it was so poorly attended. I thought it was a fun and entertaining way to spend Mother's Day afternoon.
