Staller is charismatic in the role and has an excellent voice; Moore is sympathetic, convincing and has a lovely voice as well. The spark of attraction between the two is extremely convincing.
Society mavin Elsa Maxwell and a crew of gossipy followers both comment on the ups and downs of the couple and act as comic relief. Sally Struthers is hilarious in the role of Elsa Maxwell. She gets good support from the rest of the cast, particularly Adam Matalon as her long-suffering assistant, Nigel.
The show has some excellent musical numbers and an extraordinary cast, however, it has a tendency to ramble on. Some extraneous scenes could be cut and it could use a bit of polish. But "Only a Kingdom" is a fascinating piece of work. It will be fun to see how it changes over time and where it will go from here.
