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.

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!) Read more

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.
