"Indeed, the marvel of Stroman's production is that none of the sugar in the show turns to saccharine, none of the characters turn to cardboard, none of the creamed-corn jokes land with too resonant a thud. [...] And Stroman's choreography is a delectable asset to the production. The three major production numbers all have their own particular flavor, and Stroman can array dancers on a stage with incomparable, airy finesse. [...] Stroman's finale, the evening's most inspired moment, which arrives after the curtain has gone down on the show's happy ending. The details of this number are too delicious to spoil, but it's marked by the kind of freewheeling, spirited novelty that marks her best work."
