See it if You'd like to see a well acted show

Don't see it if You're looking for a surprise, I found the ending very predictable.

Entertaining, Funny, Edgy, Raunchy, Quirky

See it if You have a sense of humor and want a good laugh.

Don't see it if You are sensitive to ADULT humor (it gets quite raunchy), or if you're looking for an intellectual story. This is all for fun.

Entertaining, Original, Funny, Quirky

See it if you don't mind a show where the entire plot revolves around one line of a song. It's funny in a silly way.

Don't see it if you need to hear all the lyrics, I couldn't understand sometimes when the actors turned towards the back of the stage.

Great acting, Edgy, Great staging, Intense, Thought-provoking

See it if You appreciate great acting from a young cast in an original story. I was highly impressed by the performances of all the actors.

Don't see it if intense themes bother/offend you. Drugs, sex, violence, and mental illness are all prevalent.

Absorbing, Funny, Great acting, Quirky, Resonant

See it if You want to hear and see more about the writer/artist. It has moments of humor and silliness as well as melancholy and sad nostalgia.

See it if You're a woman, or have ever loved a woman, or have ever seen a woman!

Don't see it if you don't enjoy FANTASTIC singers, or can't appreciate how music reflects our lives at any given moment.

Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Intelligent

See it if You enjoy a well written one woman show with a bit of an 80s flashback.
