It's not like Sean Hayes and Kristin Chenoweth are not capable, they certainly are. It's not like Rob Ashford is not a talented director, he most certainly is. The problem is that we've picked "stars" to lead the show instead of the right talent. Mr. Hayes is a comedic genius - not necessarily a singer - (although i must admit he's got a pretty decent set of pipes). Kristin Chenoweth could possibly be one of the brightest stars on Broadway, but the role of Fran Kublick - questionable.
Because this show is such a good romp and a light hearted love story - it's certainly worth seeing and the cast is certainly talented even if mis-cast. I suspect despite the mixed and luke warm reviews, this one will last a short while.
