Barbara Cook is charming
1 October 2002 | by aliputputSee all my reviews

This musical is pure fun. Great performances by all, but Barbara Cook is just delightful. Though a kids musical by name, this is one that will enchant all ages. Corny, yes, but sweet. This movie is hard to find, but well worth the search. See it if you can!
