Audience Reviews for We're Not Dressing


Silly virtually plotless musical is more interesting for it's cast than any of the lame antics on screen. Carole is terrific as usual make her spoiled heiress a deeper character surely than what was on the page. The Merm has some throwaway songs but is largely wasted and Bing is in fine voice but what's so distracting is the absurd amount of makeup they slapped on him! He is more heavily made up than any of the actresses. Gracie Allen is an addledpated delight.
