About halfway through the second act, I had that thought that this must be what audience of the great forgotten musicals of the fifties and sixties must have felt like as they watched Skyscraper or Maggie Flynn.
It was a fine show, but never quite rose to greatness. (I understand that with two star performances on Broadway there were moments that broke through; without Norbert and Aaron on tour, it never quite gets there.) The songs are fine, and I’m sure in fifty years people will wonder if it’s revivable and why it didn’t do better. But really, it’s the perfect “tired businessman” kind of show. I’m glad I saw it, but only a few hours later I can’t remember any of the songs except for the first one (which is reprised several times throughout the show).
