Pop Punk High
Greenwich V
Edgy, Dizzying, Entertaining, Quirky

See it if You like a fun, high energy, youthful musical. It was very well sung and danced. The characters were very funny if somewhat stereotyped.

Don't see it if It was very loud! If you have sensitive ears this is not for you. Also they play fast and loose with “obscene” language.
