Stories of other characters though take less time, but also attract the attention. Both lovers had to step over their beliefs in order to gain personal happiness. Duchess was to reject the conventions of noble bloods. Choirgirl had to realize that it is not necessary to link the title of her beloved to his personality.

Therefore, it is not necessary to fight with own feelings, even if they will not be, at first, clear to others.

Musical melodies sound very softly and sincerely. Music of the famous composer is up to date – it is well perceived by the nowadays’ public. The charming dance numbers performed by Matthew Broderick and K. O'Hara bring to mind the classic Broadway compositions. Brightly choreographed performances attract the viewer's attention to the events taking place on the stage. Lyrical music heard throughout the musical. They give it a special lightness and romanticism. Immersed in love vicissitudes of characters, you can spend your time pretty well. Musical leaves behind a feeling of radiant joy.
