July 27th, 2016

See it if Catchy music, great story and wonderful performances! Funny scenes, heartwarming moments, it has almost everything a great musical needs!

Don't see it if Act 1 has touching moments & is stronger than Act2 which didn't reach the potential I thought it could but it's a great show & worth seeing!

AaronTheTheatreGuy gave Fully Committed a 90

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Quirky
July 27th, 2016

See it if you love Jesse Tyler Ferguson or Modern Family. Cute show, great characterizations in a piece that could fall flat in the wrong hands.

Don't see it if off-beat humor or adult themes are not your bag.

EdinGhurl gave Motown: The Musical a 79

Entertaining, Indulgent, Resonant, Dizzying, Great singing
July 26th, 2016

See it if you love the music of Motown and enjoy high-energy singing. It's a great time if you love the music.

Don't see it if you are not familiar with the music, as otherwise the relatively weak book will be a serious drawback.

Dan Q gave Hadestown (Off-Broadway) a 95

Great staging, Romantic, Quirky, Clever, Great singing
July 26th, 2016

See it if you're a sucker for great music and a romantic story told in an unconventional way.

Don't see it if you prefer a more clear-cut narrative or a happy ending.

Marcy gave The Mushroom Cure a 78

Don't see it if Uncomfortable with OCD, want intermission, don't like drug talk, need action or production value. He's a standup comic and that factors in.
