    Bells Are Ringing

    ★★★★½

    The musical numbers here are not spectacular, but are made all the more memorable due to the dynamic performances from the two leads.

Annette did not disappoint in the slightest, and actually exceeded my already high expectations. 

    A prior knowledge of Sparks music, definitely helped in my…
