Staged with more style than usual in a "compilation" show, the performances are
strong and the simple set is fine given the dramatic economy of the whole
production. That isn't to say anybody is short-changed by performer, writer or

"Compilation" musicals are usually family style and this really isn't for the

Broadway show and maybe re-live youth a little. Not a bad choice for those who
prefer this style of musical and accept a more adult approach to them.
