“Showstopping… elaborately comedic choreography”

“...and the music is carried along by the hilarious lyrics and Stroman's exuberant staging. …The director-choreographer's formidable skills are best illustrated in such numbers as ‘Roll in the Hay,’ in which she uses the long limbs of Sutton Foster (as the comely assistant, Inga) to riotously lascivious effect, and the show's centerpiece, Irving Berlin's ‘Puttin' on the Ritz.’ The latter number, here the showstopping equivalent to ‘Springtime for Hitler’ from Producers, has been greatly expanded from the film version, with the elaborately comedic choreography owing debts to such figures as the Marx Brothers and David Parsons.”
