**** Recommended **** As we walked out of Broadway Playhouse after seeing “A Taste of Things to Come”, my friend Helen said she’d bet that that every woman in the audience loved the musical, and that the men probably thought it was just OK. Judging by the cheers at the curtain call, I’d have to agree with her. I thought it had a dynamite cast, a well-written original score, but not much of a story. 3 ½ Spotlights
