Don't Bother
24 August 2007 | by (Boston, Ma) – See all my reviews

Even if you like musicals (and I do), don't bother with this bit of tripe. Suffice it to say, it's short, and that's about the only thing to recommend it. The acting is horrendous, the singing, highly mediocre, and the music itself is especially abysmal tripe, with nary a hummable tune in sight (just a lot of forgettable schlock). Add to this all the dull direction and production and this comes out as a total waste of time, albeit a short time. I gather the leading man went on to become an opera star. Well, he's certainly ugly, fat, and totally lacking in any acting talent, so I'm not surprised he did. 99% of all opera singers can't act and he is no exception. And Warren and Dubin must have been scraping the bottom of the barrel for the music delivered here. Though never the caliber of a Berlin, Gershwin, Arlen, etc., they did write a few memorable tunes, but you won't find any of them here.
