Must see, Intelligent, Edgy, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if a play that shows the inner workings of print media, and what it takes to be successful (and at what cost?), fancies you.

Don't see it if you're into musicals, have difficulty with accents, and not into shows that are fast-paced.

Also This show was extraordinary. Carvel and Miller are superb, as is the r... Read more Read less

Farfetched, Great staging, Quirky, Different

See it if a story that's a cross between friends and [insert soap opera of choice here] appeals to you.

Don't see it if ...I can't think of a reason why you wouldn't want to see this show. It's harmless fun. Improbable. But harmless nonetheless.

Also Nice staging.

Unimaginative, Disappointing, Skewers an easy target just to make a point, Cliched, Nice staging

See it if you think you might enjoy a show that takes a cheap, dare I say intolerant, shot at one group of people.

If cheesy and a piece of fluff had a baby it would be called “the cher show”

See it if Cher is your smart-ass idol and anything Cher would delight you.
