Midtown W
Relevant, Great staging, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You like fast paced musicals by a talented ensemble cast, a quirky storyline plus an awesome high energy Russian song and dance number.

Slow, Cliched, Quirky, Clever

See it if It's a clever send off of a lot of liberal good intentions that ultimately go awry.

Don't see it if A clever idea gets old pretty quickly, the characters got a bit annoying and it felt a bit self-serving/ navel gazing.
