"In a time when it seems like every TV show, movie, or reality family is being parodied, it is refreshing to see '90210! The Musical!' fire on all cylinders. Backed by a meticulously curated script, a catchy musical score rife with irony, and a diverse ensemble filled with talented and unique individual performances, this is one parody which pays affectionate homage to its source material but also stands out as a very enjoyable piece of musical comedy."

Ethan Kanfer: New York Theater Reviews

"Sporting a a tirelessly upbeat cast and a pop-inflected score by Assaf Gleizner, the show neatly compresses 10 seasons of the legendary teen soap opera into a brisk two acts...Director/choreographer Donald Garverick keeps the energy level high, and adds extra parodic flavor by incorporating '90s dance trends into the show’s deliriously silly numbers...The show’s grade point average suffers only in one area: lyrics...The rhymes can get a bit sloppy, and there are missed opportunities."

The Huffington Post

"Bob and Tobly McSmith are the masters of the unauthorized musical parody with a proven track record of pop culture parodies...They’ve done it again with their snarky, hilarious, take-no-prisoners adaption of the teen soap. The musical doesn’t follow a plot so much as being a long string of jokes about the show and its characters, ensuring that regardless of whether you’ve seen all 293 episodes or just have cursory knowledge of the characters, you can enjoy it all the same."

See it if My third show with this company, having seen Saved by the Bell & Full House and by far the best! Very funny and a must for 90210 fans.

Funny, Banal, Cliched, Nostalgic, Silly

See it if you have fond (or even not-so-fond) memories of the overwrought 90s nighttime soap. Many of the jokes resonate, however clunkily employed

Don't see it if you need anything approaching respectable viewing in your theatergoing. This isn't that but if you're willing, you'll have a bawdy good time

See it if you are a fan of 90210. Great music and very clever lyrics. It's fun. Great cast.Great laughs.

Don't see it if You want serious theater or a cerebral comedy. A working knowledge of the real show makes it even funnier but is not 100% necessary.

Also Ok, I wasn't much of a fan of 90210 (they left out people of any other... Read more Read less

Great acting, Great writing, Hilarious, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if you like to reunite with your 90210 characters in a fun way being a parody. Very catchy tunes & over the top plot that keeps you laughing.

Don't see it if you mind a "1 star" venue far from the broadway theater district, but the stage is big enough to deliver big fun by a big-talented cast.
