A delightful evening! While it won’t have you pondering the great issues of the day, it’s an exceptionally well performed, upbeat musical that captures the period of the 1920s and will put a smile on your face. The cast is uniformly good.

This show is a treasure and should not be missed. The cast was exceptional -- strong script and score helped make this a wonderful evening for "glimpses of the moon" under a magical harvest moon in Washington.
