Relevant, Great writing, Great acting, Cliched, Funny

See it if You are interested in the subject matter. You like good dialogue between interesting characters.

Don't see it if You want a deeper plot and more of a resolution. It repeats the same themes throughout and comes to a predictable unsatisfying conclusion.

Slight, Interesting, Good music, Great acting, Delightful

See it if You are interested in a story about the music industry among young artists fighting to make it. Good acting, strong scenes and engaging plot

Don't see it if You want a moving play or something with insight. It's very enjoyable but overall felt slight and missing something.

Also The lead male actor is fantastic in his role and worth seeing just for... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Overrated, Slow, Great acting

See it if You are interested in a story about a family dealing with a child with a disability. Good acting by all.

Don't see it if You want a tighter play that doesn't have as many extraneous scenes that drag the main story down.

Also This play is overall sweet but feels too much like a first draft with ... Read more Read less

Banal, Cliched, Disappointing, Great singing, Overrated

See it if You REALLY like this genre and don't want to miss yet another entry into it. Like the cast, they're good.

Don't see it if You want an engaging plot, tuneful clever songs, a show with something new to say. Don't want to see unfunny comedy and filler side plots.

Also This was disappointing. Many previous shows in this genre like First D... Read more Read less

Clever, Delightful, Cliched, Entertaining, Funny

See it if Fun enjoyable show w/ an engaging plot, songs that fit the story well. If the subject matter interests you at all, then go, you'll enjoy it.

Don't see it if Only want serious musicals that don't feel cliche, cheesy, but it's still an enjoyable show despite of that.

Empty, Funny, Disappointing, Great writing, Overrated

See it if You like great dialogue and humorous lines, but are okay with no real plot, minimal character arc and an overall empty play.

Don't see it if Plot, development and a purpose to the play is important to you. If there's anything else you are interested in seeing, see it instead.

Also I did like the writing, the characters, but the play felt unfulfilling... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Funny, Refreshing

See it if You like great dialogue, interconnecting stories and surprises. Fantastic acting and characters, especially from Paul, maid & young boy.

Don't see it if You don't like some tense moments, especially the end, but it's still worth seeing.

Slow, Overrated, Confusing, Indulgent, Intense

See it if You are okay with long bouts of narration, monologues & exposition with little reason to care. You don't mind too many pointless characters.

Don't see it if You prefer plays with actual dialogue, though there is some near the end when the play gets better, but it's too little too late.

Also Wanted to leave at intermission as the first act is a narrated confusi... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Disappointing, Indulgent, Insipid, Slow

See it if You have loved Fiasco's other productions, but are okay with this not being as good as those. 1st act is a slog, perks up a bit in the 2nd.

Don't see it if Want unique entertaining Shakespeare. This is unremarkable with only a few interesting moments. Design a reminder of previous CSC misfire.

Banal, Cliched, Disappointing, Insipid, Overrated

See it if You really want to see the star actors.

Don't see it if Very slight play that repeats the sole plot point over and over. Characters preachy and one dimensional. Directing & acting could be better.

Also Jim Parrack comes off as the best actor and most interesting character... Read more Read less

Cliched, Slow, Insipid, Overrated, Disappointing

See it if Don't. Spend your time seeing anything else well reviewed on here. The singing is the only good part, but not the songs.

Don't see it if You want a funny clever witty story, it's bland and cliched. You want good musical numbers, they're cheesy and pointless.

Also This feels really amateurish from the plot, the jokes, the songs and t... Read more Read less

Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Great staging

See it if You like fun riotous Shakespeare,yet still faithful. This moved quickly & remained completely understandable. Likely the best MobileUnit yet

Don't see it if You want Shakespeare 100% sticking to the original, but still check it out anyway, you'll change your mind

Also Wasn't at all hard to follow like past Mobile Units have been. Midsumm... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Great writing, Great acting, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if Quick writing and strong acting portraying human's difficulty in making connections. Engaging dialogue and tiny theater keeps you engrossed.

Don't see it if All about character development but little plot. Leaves you wishing there was more to it or a better resolution to it all.

Also Try the standby line. Small turnout and a couple tickets available.

Quirky, Fluffy, Funny, Disappointing, Delightful

See it if Only if you like Michael Friedman's work and want to see some of his earlier, not as good, songs. Taylor Mac stands out as well.

Don't see it if Want a plot. Just a bunch of stories being narrated, some funny, some boring and the occasional interesting song.

See it if You really like seeing new musicals with some tuneful exciting songs, but are okay that it's tone is all over the place &unremarkably cliche

Don't see it if You only like musicals with a strong plot and developed characters that doesn't just feel thrown together to make a political point.

Also Tone is all over the place from silly to serious. Ugly blue set with g... Read more Read less

Confusing, Disappointing, Indulgent, Overrated

See it if You want to see Benanti even though she's underused. You get a dirt cheap ticket off stubhub, they aren't selling so they hit rock bottom.

Don't see it if Want a show that makes sense. Want actual comedy not a farce with barely humorous one liners. You like Schumer, she never quite lifts off.

Also How is this show so overrated on here? This is such a nothingness of a... Read more Read less
