It is 1982 and Donald Moscowitz has overbearing parents. They disapprove of his choice of profession (actor), his flair for decorating (pastels), and his lifestyle (homosexual).

See it if ...you want to waste your time and money. I had high hopes for the continued run of the show from the spring. But, it was re-done poorly now
Don't see it if ...you expect to see an improved revival of a show. The show was made worse with dated, unfunny, poorly directed, + disconnected performance
See it if I went to see the first cast again, because they were fun! When I sat down, I found out that this show was cast with all their understudies!
Don't see it if I enjoyed the other cast better, but this cast was nice, too. I enjoyed the last script much more - this version was changed for the worse.
See it if Stereotypical characters in a plot built entirely around a silly deception concept, misunderstandings, mistaken identities and coincidences

Don't see it if No substance to the script, production, or dated shallow material. See it if you are voting for Trump & believe in simplistic stereotypes.
