Quirky, Great music, Hilarious

See it if Unique hilarious show. Stellar cast bringing it all. Great score. I could've watched it immediately a second time.

Don't see it if Staging could've remained cheap without looking as cheap as it did.

Great singing, Great acting, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you would enjoy a truly original quirky off-Broadway show with an amazing cast, beautiful rockabilly score, and humorous and clever book.

Don't see it if you prefer big Broadway musicals, rich staging, don't like rockabilly music
