Don't see it if You dislike farces or the 'teen' genre. Even if you aren't super familiar with 90210 this show is still very entertaining.
"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
"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."
"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."
