Catchy tunes, Entertaining, Fluffy, Quirky

See it if You like catchy pop tunes. This is more of a rock concert than broadway musical. Well performed and funny at times.

Great singing, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You love 90s britpop, strong female leads, and clever/original songwriting.

Don't see it if You want bang for buck; it's an amazingly fun show, but at 75 minutes, way too short. Consider carefully if doing Broadway on a budget!

See it if you like loud, in your face singing with a whole hell of a lot of attitude. The performers are amazing

Don't see it if you don't care for a modern, retelling of history by a group of strong independent women. Funny and edgy, with a modern soundtrack!

Don't see it if you don't like to have fun. This will make you smile and the songs will be stuck in your head FOR-EVER!!!

Also I went into this not knowing much and I had the most fun time! I'm alr... Read more Read less
