The viral musical hit comes to Broadway. An edgy, comic look at coming of age in the digital age, through the lens of sci-fi films of the 50s, horror flicks of the 80s, and teen movies of the 90s. More…
Jeremy Heere is your average, nothing-special teenager at Middleborough High in nothing-special New Jersey...until the day he finds out about 'The Squip.' A tiny supercomputer inside a pill. Swallow one and a personalized voice will tell you how to dress, how to speak, how to…become cool. Thus begins a journey that pits Jeremy's desire to be popular against his struggle to remain true to his authentic self.
See it if you're an unsophisticated post-Millennial who might enjoy a loud, shrill, silly "sci-fi lite" musical PSA re: being cool vs. being yourself.
Don't see it if u expect more than just shallow stereotypes; u don't like repetitive lyrics; u don't like repetitive lyrics; u don't like repetitive lyrics.
See it if you are a teen or tween and your ears are already numb. You will see anything for a bargain price.
Don't see it if you are not the target audience and U still value your hearing; story line cute but not enough to make up for lousy jerky dancing, music.
Also Give this one a miss if you are not a young teen.
See it if you are under 20.This is a show for the young 'uns.It is hackneyed, totally predictable, dull.Nothing about this was new or fresh.
Don't see it if you are looking for something fresh.At intermission,there was a mass exodus of adults.Show is probably terrific for teens, not for adults.
See it if you are average or lower intellect 12-16 year old, have that intellectual level, like Will Roland or George Salazar, or are related to cast.
Don't see it if you avoid yet another high school coming of age story comparing poorly to Fast Times/Grease, cheap sexual and LGBTQ jokes, biracial romance.
See it if Horrible story and weak score. The cast was just ok! No huge talent set was cheap. It was bad regional theater quality.
Don't see it if This is up there as one of the worst broadway shows I ever seen. I do like stupid humor and like teenage driven comedy, this show sucked!!
See it if you're a high school drama teacher intent on inspiring your students to write, compose, costume, direct, and choreograph their own musical.
Don't see it if you're a high school drama teacher taking a class to see a flashy Broadway show. (The design work is scrappy and there' s no big chorus.)
Also Memorable line: "But I am a masturbator..."
See it if wow, I don't know. You have some time and money to kill? You like high school and science fiction?
Don't see it if you're expecting strong songs, good choreography, stellar performances, a good plot, relevant humor, a realistic portrayal of high school...

Don't see it if you want to see a Broadway caliber show

Don't see it if you want to see good theatre. This musical is damaging for teens and is a bad cycle to the already big problem facing most of our teens.
See it if um... don't see it.
Don't see it if You are expecting a Dear Evan Hansen masterpiece. This show tries too hard to reach a teenage audience and ultimately ends up making fun of
See it if you are a teenager 16 and under who feels like you don't belong among your peers or you're a big fan of George Salazar.
Don't see it if you want characters to root for/a show where all of the leads can sing, or you are put off by production design that overpowers its material
See it if you have money to burn
Don't see it if you value a storyline that makes sense, with characters who can act and sing at the same time

See it if You know someone in the show and want to support their career
Don't see it if Stereotypical characters singing dull music bothers you, or if the genre including “women as prizes” is offensive to you
See it if You somehow talked to the cult followers and they convince you that it’s worth seeing and you do t mind being totally confused.
Don't see it if You think it’s like DEH...the music is confusing, the story line is bizarre and even the quality of singing is questionable.
See it if you can’t discern a quality musical from a loud, obnoxious one or you’re a hyperactive tween that can’t sit still or can’t hear.
Don't see it if you want a musical with memorable tunes and witty lyrics, or one where the performances and decibel level are not loudly over-the-top.
See it if You like adult actors playing pseudo high school characters. Overhyped storied brought to the stage. You like “Michael In the Bathroom.”
Don't see it if You want to save your money for good theatre. A bad book bothers you. You don’t like sci-fi meets stupid.
