Like the 1982 movie it's based on, Blake Edwards's 1995 Broadway musical (music by Henry Mancini) promises more than it delivers. Edwards is adept at setting up interesting, high-stakes situations only to let us down with cheap slapstick or mawkish sentimentality. Now, imagine a low-budget version performed by young actors still working on their chops. There are a few high points in this show from NightBlue Performing Arts: Shari Mocheit is winning as the out-of-work singer who impersonates a drag queen (Julie Andrews's role in both the movie and the musical). And Billy Dawson shows considerable charm as her gay friend. —Jack Helbig
