What I liked

The clever interaction of what is going on in real life, versus the thoughts and fears and over-reactions of her monkey-mind were thoroughly entertaining and often surprising. Some big laughs here, especially from the three monkeys in her “mind.” Excellent, catchy and touching songs that seem fully capable of gracing a Broadway stage! Such a positive message for all young girls. A wonderful night at the theater!

What I didn't like

It would be helpful if the actors were able to wear microphones or some form of amplification as some lines were difficult to hear and understand.

My overall impression

A thoroughly entertaining exploration of a motherless teen’s quest to convince her shell-shocked-by-life father to support her singing dreams and in so doing the love of Dad-to-daughter reignites in heartfelt ways.
