How many performances did they miss? Are they back to doing the show now? We have tickets on Saturday night, and hoping to see the full cast.

"How many performances did they miss? Are they back to doing the show now? We have tickets on Saturday night, and hoping to see the full cast."

They missed at least 3 performances, but the show is back up and running again. Enjoy. It's a sweet little show. Please let us know what you think.

I thought this was just okay. Some of the music is pretty, and the cast is excellent but I agree with MemorableUsername, it does take a really sharp turn into seriousness in a way that's unearned. We get an hour of romantic comedy cliches and then all of a sudden the show gets dark, and stays that way. It felt false to me. 

A little swash, a bit of buckle - you'll love it more than bread.

It seems crazy that this hasn't extended yet.

This show is completely fresh- not from a book or movie or biographical. I will be going back fingers crossed more tickets become available! perfect show for New Yorkers and musical theater lovers

can’t wait to see where this goes and hope it does extend!

I saw the Goodspeed production too, and while there was a puppet dog - wasn't there a real dog that appeared in the final scene? I'm almost positive I remember a golden lab-type dog at the end.

I edited my earlier comment about there being no real dog, because I'm starting to suspect there might have been after all in the end (but like I said, I left at intermission).

Not a lot of reviews for this.

NY Times is negative

Hollywood Reporter is positive

Theatermania is negative, and amusing ("the cutest little musical about alcoholism you ever will see" )

The Wrap is positive

A very real dog makes a charming surprise entrance at the very end.

 

Earlier productions had a gorgeous puppet dog.

 

Thanks for the reviews, MUN.

I assumed they would extend, but hearing nothing about it I guess it's not happening.
