Cliched, Dated, Disappointing, Slow, Indulgent

See it if you want to see theater's inner working. A play about actors at various career levels auditioning & performing as played by acting students.

Don't see it if you expect professional level performances. These are students. They work hard but they are clearly still learning.

Entertaining, Ambitious, Fluffy, Slow

See it if You don't mind simple staging. You like a lot of singing (it is a musical). You want to hear some funny lines. There are moments to laugh.

Don't see it if You want something with more meat and potatoes as a play. You don't like musicals. You need elaborate staging.

Banal, Dated, Quirky, Slow, Cliched

See it if you appreciate charming, nostalgic musicals with simple plots and character relationships requiring no audience intellectual effort

Don't see it if you insist on memorable, outstanding lyrics and melodies, expert acting, a riveting plot or an important and relevant social/political theme

Ambitious, Cliched, Confusing, Disappointing

See it if Silly plot but peppy lyrics and score and some good singing

Don't see it if You are looking for a polished production

Disappointing, Indulgent, Cliched, Bad singing, Plot? what plot?

See it if You're sadistic enough to enjoy the meta of struggling actors in a shitty musical about struggling actors in a shitty musical.

Don't see it if You're hoping for anything more than a mildly amusing look at actors struggling (I know, what a new and refreshing topic!)

Also Full disclosure: I left at intermission, because it was a dreary Monda... Read more Read less

See it if You want to see a entertaining show with funny songs, but not much story. I enjoyed it!

Don't see it if If you want to see a show with a story. Learn from me...don't sit next to the speaker, way to loud

Banal, Cliched, Disappointing, Indulgent

See it if You want to know something about what it's like to become an actor. This was an ordinary show. Nothing felt authentic. Music, unimaginative.

Don't see it if You have no interest in how to become an actor or the obstacles faced.

Disappointing, Slow, Excruciating, Poor singing, Poor acting

See it if you like musicals even though the singing is so-so and the acting is so-so and the set is so-so...I left after the first act at intermission

Don't see it if you expect a memorable singing/acting experience. So-so comedy and so-so everything. Really probably a vanity project.

Amateurish, really bad singing, banal lyrics

See it if you are related to someone in the show

Don't see it if you want to continue to love musicals

Disappointing, Cliched, Overrated

See it if Can't think of a reason!

Don't see it if Just don't!

Entertaining, Funny, Fluffy, Clever, Awkward

See it if If you like very meta shows in small intimate theaters with a cute score and book.

Don't see it if If you want a big production or a deep story. This felt kind of like a really good community theatre production.

Also Best part: You get free honey!!!!!! (It is really good honey! Worth th... Read more Read less

Don't see it if Have no interest in bees

Confusing, Disappointing, Ambitious, Insipid

See it if you like to see a play in its beginnings,knowing it will need more development

Don't see it if you can't sit in very cramped seats

Disappointing, Inept, Overrated, Tedious

See it if you can be content with some good tunes and few funny lines. Desire to support aspiring performers and show creators.

Don't see it if don't be fooled by non-credible high ratings from unrated showcase members. Show is week in all aspects accompanied by single loud keyboard

Also Venue is dilapidated and grubby.

Has potential but delivery was weak

See it if Enjoyable songlist that is somewhat of a cross between A Chorus Line (with a bit more of a plot) and the simplicity of The Fantastiks.

Don't see it if Not a strong story line

Also Good lyrics. Good melodies. Some witty banter... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Disappointing, Fluffy, Overrated, Slow

See it if You have the ability to see past the flaws and can imagine how it would be with a lot of reworking and a cast that was strong and talented.

Don't see it if You lose patience with poor performances and a script and music that needs to desperately improve as well as the ridiculous choreography

Entertaining, Cute, Fluffy

See it if You like a lightweight show with pleasant but ultimately unmemorable music (and whose message takes far too long to be stated).

Don't see it if You expect to hear polished singers or a well-defined plot-line.

Clever, Great staging, Great acting

See it if very good

Don't see it if N/a

Confusing, Entertaining

See it if You want to see a new musical, full of rhyming songs (it becomes fun to guess the next couplet), by performers who seem to be having fun.

Don't see it if You are looking for a plot, or don't like works that break the fourth wall.

Cliched, Confusing, Funny, Slow, Indulgent

See it if you're looking for a show about actors trying to make it

Don't see it if you're looking for anything of substance, you won't find it here

Banal, Disappointing, Slow, Fluffy, Confusing

See it if You're an aspiring actor and have nothing else to do

Don't see it if You are looking for a good show with professional actors, good singers and dancers.

Confusing, Ambitious, Disappointing, Fluffy, Quirky

See it if you don't mind weak, confusing at times story line, both good and mediocre singer/actors.

Don't see it if you want a polished play and don't mind the overpowering piano player.

Also Wish it could have been more.

Ambitious, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You want to be entertained in a tiny, quaint theater. Felt like a high school production.

Don't see it if you are expecting a large stage Broadway-type production.
