Refreshing, Quirky, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you want to enjoy a performance with the entire family. Short performance, with some built-in audience interaction. Slap-stick humor.

Don't see it if you don't appreciate simple humor, don't like audience interaction, and/or prefer multi-character performances with spoken word.

Also Genuinely fun performance. Alex Curtis was delightful on and off stage... Read more Read less

Thought-provoking, Edgy, Absorbing

See it if issues matter to you. The topic is poignant and the point is made clear in this script.

Don't see it if you want to see big name talent. The performers in this show were good generally but were uneven in quality.

Cliched, Great singing, Overrated

See it if you simply *loved* the movie version; the script was largely identical to the movie, with singing and dancing added.

Don't see it if you have kiddos (b/c: swearing and prostitutes); you're anti 80's pop/love songs; you're looking for originality...

Also Eric Anderson (as Happy Man/Mr. Thompson) was a STAR in this performan... Read more Read less

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Quirky, Thought-provoking

See it if you appreciate smart acting, strong characters, and meaningful content. This show had us thinking for *hours* after walking away.

Don't see it if you need a complete plot line that follows the traditional story format.

Delightful, Entertaining, Indulgent, Quirky, Funny

See it if you liked the movie...or you like musicals...or you know some mean girls and want to see what could happen to them!

Don't see it if you saw the movie and hated it...or you don't like musicals...or you're a documentary buff...or you're boring.

Network (NYC)
Midtown W
Relevant, Must see, Masterful, Edgy

See it if ...you appreciate a think-piece redone from film. The content is almost academic in the way it consumes the viewer using powerful language.

Don't see it if ...you don't want to think about content. ...you've seen the film; the script doesn't venture far from the content.

Also Cranston was brilliant. The staging (Scenic Design) was creative. The ... Read more Read less

Burn This
Midtown W
Great acting, Thought-provoking, Intense, Absorbing

See it if you appreciate a powerful storyline, acted with powerhouses in the theatre.

Don't see it if you don't like dialogue and straight plays, you want more up-to-date content (the 80s script is dated). Note: some violence/tense moments

Also Adam Driver was truly captivating.

Clever, Cliched, Great acting, Profound, Great staging

See it if See this show you'd like to see up and coming talent in an off-off-Broadway show; the on-stage talent was wonderful!

Don't see it if you're good at seeing what's coming, maybe skip this one...it's fairly predictable.
