Theater Pizzazz

“There are countless reasons to place a red circle with a diagonal slash over this crushingly banal, dramatically inept, dully plotted, musically bland attempt at a noirish, three-character musical...Cohen often provides exposition through monologues spoken to no one in particular rather than in dialogue between characters; just as bad, his sentences are larded with pseudo-poetic claptrap in place of believable language…Cohen's direction fails to inspire any sense of conflict or suspense.” Full Review

Stage Buddy

"Just as Vikki gets no respite from her suffering, neither do we—the performance isn’t interrupted by intermission, and Cohen doesn’t divert us with any lighter side stories...The songs...cast a sleepy spell over the production and seem to drift into each other, leaving the detached and ghostly feel of early black-and-white cinema. There’s a certain feeling of numbness and lack of direction, and we feel lost along with Vikki—wondering if a resolution is possible at all." Full Review

Doesn't work at all.

Banal, Disappointing, Excruciating

See it if you wish to spend 90 long minutes wondering why you are in the theater and not somewhere else. Stupid story, poor singing, bad characters.

Don't see it if you like a good story plot, interesting characters and good lyrics.

48
Disappointing, Excruciating, Self-indulgent, Heavy-handed

See it if you have a peculiar fascination with seeing first-hand what doesn't really work. To their credit, the actors do their best to give it life.

Don't see it if you want a show that has any focus or nuance at all. This script tries to take on everything, so ultimately it has nothing much to say.

Trivializes incest, violence and murder and is boring

See it if You want to see why so many have given poor score. I'm sure there is some talent here. But it was excruciating.

Don't see it if You want to hear the beautiful voice of the lead actress. interesting voice, clear, tends to be shrill, no vibrato, but different material?

Also I was trying to remember if there was anything worse, I don't think I ... Read more Read less

Excruciating, Cliched, Perfect for the age of trump: boorish, ignorant, clueless, offensive and crude

See it if You voted for Trump. In fact you should be forced to sit through it twice.

Don't see it if You didn't vote for Trump. You've suffered enough.

A tale of 3 very unhappy people

See it if Tale of three very unhappy people - twisted father, hurt daughter, older woman who had unrequited love. Great singing by older woman.

Don't see it if Weaker singing by younger woman. Story needs a bit more focus & beginning needs quicker pacing. 1 hr 35 min.

Excruciating, Hilarious, Offensive, Bewildering, Comically bad

See it if You can appreciate REALLY BAD theatre. This is SO BAD that it's fantastic. So many priceless moments and lines, each worse than the last.

Don't see it if You can't appreciate it as quite possibly one of the worst things you've ever seen. It would be impossible to even try to tell you the plot.

Disappointing, Excruciating, Slow, Bad singing, Worse acting

See it if You like depressing stories that really go nowhere. And if you enjoy bad acting and terrible singing this is definetly the show for you.

Dizzying, Confusing, Disappointing, Excruciating, Slow

See it if you literally have nothing better to do. Nothing? Surely you can think of something else to do. There are better ways to waste your time & $

Don't see it if Where to start? not the worst PRODUCTION of a show I've seen (there are a few redeeming qualities- i.e. the MD/pianist) but that's about it.

Dreadful

See it if I've never flamed a play before, but just don't see it. Bad writing, acting, score. I'm pretty sure it's the worst play I've ever seen.

Don't see it if If, like me, you respect (even awful) craft enough to not walk out until intermission. There's no intermission.

Confusing, Disappointing, Slow, Great singing

See it if You want to see some great songs and talented actors, and don't need any sort of emotional arc or forward motion.

Don't see it if You dislike melodrama. You don't have the patience to sit through eighty minutes of singing/monologuing for ten minutes of plot.
