Entertaining, Funny, Great singing, Great writing, Clever

See it if you want a funny and raunchy show. Skits and songs were well written and executed. All the ladies were very entertaining and comical.

Slow, Entertaining, Relevant, Resonant, Thought-provoking

See it if if you have a chance, it's an important story and while inspired by events that took place in the 80s it's still very relevant today.

Don't see it if you're expecting more than a man playing multiple characters re-telling his story of growing up around violence and gangs.
