Some critics, like Ben Brantley of the Times, have taken pot shots at the new musical version of Bullets Over Broadway, because it doesn’t seem very Woody Allen-like; it’s too loud and tries too hard to please. Well, I can tell you that it’s certainly not subtle, but it is spirited, and a fair amount of fun.

If you know me, you know I’ve got a crush on Kelli O’Hara. She’s charmed me in Light in the Piazza, South Pacific, and Nice Work If You Can Get It, and she does it again in The Bridges of Madison County, which just opened at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre.
