Clever, Uneven, Entertaining, Hilarious, Great acting

See it if you like fast-paced, physical, and in-your-face comedies.

Don't see it if you want a deeper show or the funniest comedy. I think The Play That Goes Wrong is funnier as there were some less funny parts in this play.

Great acting, Funny, Exquisite, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if Campy queer bliss. It survived the transfer to broadway beautifully with a perfect ensemble and a delightful, gonzo lead.

Don't see it if If you‘re looking for something serious, search elsewhere. This merry bunch of clowns are brilliant in only the stupidest of ways.

Hilarious, Great writing, Great acting, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you're in the mood for some silly, and might I say, raunchy fun, this play is for you. The writing and acting are quite clever.

Don't see it if you're easily offended by, well, just about anything, this might not be the show for you. The humor can be quite low brow.

Campy, Entertaining, Edgy, Quirky, Hilarious

See it if You want an irreverent, gut-busting experience filled with camp to lampoon one of America’s most memorable moments in history.

Don't see it if You want historical accuracy, are squeamish around crude humor, or believe Abraham Lincoln wasn’t at least a little bit gay.

Hilariously histrionic, Winsomely madcap, Full blast bad behaviors, Quirky madness, Ridiculously devine

See it if U never saw the Ridiculous Theater or Charles Busch 4 Cole Escola is the heir apparent 2 their hilarious histrionics & continuation of camp

Don't see it if can't C humor in bad taste, too soon? is question U ask, augmenting 19th century melodramatic acting styles not 4 U, can't afford BWY prices
