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.

Don't see it if Odd choreography and longer than it needs to be.
See it if You enjoy stories set in high school w/ a sci-fi twist. Reminiscent of Little Shop of Horrors.

See it if You want to see something that feels truly original, clever and fun without being fluffy and without meaning. GREAT sets/lights/costumes.
Don't see it if You’re looking for deep, dark or dangerous. While this could actually be described with any of those words it’s simultaneously none of them.
See it if Will Roland and George Salazar are still on target.. Lighting is well used. Huge crowd of young folks loved it.
Don't see it if Enjoyed it more in smaller space.. Sound blasting. The older theaters need elevators and more Men/Ladies rooms.
See it if you're 4 everything a musical on young people & our cyber world is, all rolled up into a fun story of relationship adapting w/real language.
Don't see it if you do not like the way young people speak today, do not like loud music or do not care for another story of young people finding their way.
See it if you are or remember being a teenager in high school. Sci fi pills aside the play explores the pain of transitioning to adulthood for everyon

Don't see it if you don't like a cast of mainly young people or only like mature drama or musicals.
See it if you enjoy high-energy musicals that deal with high school/teen issues. Appreciated for entertainment value, but probably a polarizing show.
Don't see it if you don't like the ridiculous storyline & are looking for something more intelligent, have no patience for loud screaming teens in audience
See it if Not really scifi—this level of surveillance is pretty much here; accurate that char’s 1st exposure to data netwrk drives purchasing decision
Don't see it if you don’t like period pieces because every show you see after this will look aged and dated AF
See it if a show geared to teens & sci-fi fans; High energy cast (including 4 understudies who were excellent); positive message; crowd pleaser
Don't see it if looking for more adult entertainment; somewhat repetitive score; positive but simplistic message; I realize I'm not the target demographic.
See it if you want to experience one of the best scores ever written for musical theater, couched in a coming-of-age tale with a twist.

Don't see it if You want a traditional sounding musical or one with great complexity.
See it if a high school-rooted, cyber-world-inspired fresh new musical with questionable themes, sci-fi flair, and irreverent attitudes delights.
Don't see it if seeking smart lyrics (music is solid; the words, cliche), unpredictable work, or a moral that is more than the obvious “always be yourself."
See it if Growing up's tough, but it's still better than cheating out of it with escapism. Spongebob Musical-ish feels, less mature Dear Evan Hansen.
Don't see it if More for a younger audience. For more mature folks, may feel "been there, done that." Doesn't dig that emotionally deep.

Don't see it if You're stuck up.
See it if you want pop-rock musical w/"after-school-special"-theme re: high school popularity. Earnest, sweet, great performances. Fully engaging.
Don't see it if you want DEAR EVAN HANSEN or SPRING AWAKENING. This is sometimes trite, but tries hard to please. Energetic score w/some clever lyrics.
See it if you want to see a different twist on a teen angst storyline. It's got fun characters and a great score
Don't see it if you are looking for a realistic storyline or you can't access your inner teen. This is a show that has a definite teen focus.
See it if you want a glimpse of where musical theatre is heading. The show is loud and frenetic, blending sci-fi, teen angst, and pop-rock.

See it if you were a fan of Little Shop of Horrors and Dear Even Hanson! This little show will charm the pants right off you.
Don't see it if a new musical about teenage angst is something you can' relate to because it's been too many years since you graduated from high school.
See it if you'll enjoy a musical comedy about the social anxiety of high schoolers. Plot is trite. Characters stock, but execution is excellent.

See it if Talented and energetic cast (including a few understudies) do a great job with mediocre material.
Don't see it if you're not very interested teenagers and/or sci-fi. Stories of teen angst have been done before and done better.

Don't see it if wanting smarter, more original story; tired of high school settings, mean girls, or inept-but-well-meaning "adults" as part of the formula.
