Funny, Fun, Great music, Fluffy

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.

Clever, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You are a fan of 90210, high school movies, teen soaps. The music/lyrics are super clever & hilarious at times. Talented cast. LOTS OF FUN!

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 comedy."

"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."
