In his review of this show’s original run, Ben Brantley referred to it as “affectless.” Judging from this revival, I’d say he was mostly correct. There are moments of exuberance (an interpretation of “Hey, Big Spender” from Sweet Charity jumps off the screen), but this filmed stage performance is mostly an uneven jumble of shruggy shoulders, bowler hats, jazz hands and expressionless faces.
