See it if you want to see a new musical that tells the story of the unsung heroes of Hollywood. Especially funny for those who have worked in LA.

Don't see it if you're not really interested in the film industry. Even if you're not, though, you will have a great time with these characters!

See it if you want to see basically every broadway hit you've ever heard of in one go, performed by very talented stars.

Don't see it if you want an authentic theater experience. Because this show is basically a highlight reel, but you already know the hits.

See it if you would like to see a major work of musical theater history, but is still quite relevant today.
