Agreed that many are "tired" of hearing these kind of stories by now, and they're being told many times, on stage, in film and on television. But this is anchored in a specific place and time-- and pop culture-- and therefore felt different and delightful to me.
Honestly, I just enjoyed the performance-- and the heartfelt commitment of the cast-- more than so many evenings I've spent in the theatre over the last 5 or so years. It wasn't "hilarious" (like THE PROM or TOOTSIE, both of which had me laughing throughout) or "shattering" (like DEAR EVAN HANSEN has been to many people) or "profoundly inspirational" (like COME FROM AWAY or THE BAND'S VISIT)...it was just really, really entertainment and uplifting and fun. It has its flaws, and maybe Broadway isn't its ultimate destination, but I hope others get to perform it and enjoy it.
And you'll be hearing some of those songs in cabarets and showcases and auditions.
