Funny, Masterful, Delightful, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You want a FUN show. No plot. No drama. No twists and turns. Just an assortment of folks onstage having fun rhyming/free-styling for you.

Don't see it if You don’t appreciate the art or can’t relax and just have fun with the loose fit feel of this out of the box show. Read more

Sporadically funny, Frivolous, Overrated, Entertaining

See it if you like hit-or-miss musical improv a la "Whose Line Is It Anyway" or UCB; you seek an upbeat entertainment & a possible celebrity cameo.

Don't see it if ur an actual fan of freestyle rap [Make no mistake: This is no cypher. It's all played for comedy]; u seek a show worthy of Bway prices. Read more

Skilled improv but you can see its equal or better by streaming old episodes of the tv improv show "whose line is it anyway?"

See it if fun vibe; gets audience raucously involved; very clever ability to build on comedic references thru-out evening

Don't see it if fluff; rhyming & concepts rarely brilliant; has soft core of inoffensive sentimentality; would work better in more intimate setting Read more

Talented cast, Refreshing, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you want to see a show that takes its cues from words, stories or phrases from the audience. The cast creates a unique show on the spot.

Don't see it if you don't like rap even if it's used with a lot of humor and originality. There is language used so not for younger children. Read more

Clever, Relevant, Intelligent, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you want good entertainment and like rap and improv. Performers are very clever. A fun evening.

Don't see it if you prefer traditional theater. This is an improv show probably better suited to a music venue than Broadway.
