Saw it in Boston in its pre-Broadway run. I think everyone works very hard but not being a hard core Neil Diamond fan, I wasn't all that entertained. I thought it never rose above your average jukebox musical. And I don't particularly love sing alongs when I'm in the theater and every song is a sing along (not by design - the audience can't seem to help itself.) Honestly, it just wasn't my type of show. YMMV.
