The goofy "Batman"-esque tone of season 3 - which tanked so many other episodes - actually works in this one, a fun and lighthearted episode with some great character moments (Kurayakin's turn as Broadway star, Napoleon's underwhelmed facial expressions during Janet's private audition, Waverly karate-chopping a THRUSH agent in the theatre, etc). The tone of the episode - the dangerous threat-of-the-week offset with occasional light-hearted and self-mocking humor - recalls the best of season 2. While "The Off-Broadway Affair" doesn't quite reach those heights, it's still a fun and watchable installment.
Also, there's a great musical score by Gerald Fried, lots of bright color, Napoleon kicking ass in tuxedo - & the actors all seem to be having a lot of fun. Shari Lewis is great as Janet. One of the best 3rd-year episodes.
