Campy, Funny, Quirky, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if you would enjoy seeing a medium's biography portrayed by himself, on video, by a youngster & with a talented group performing related info.

Don't see it if you expect a serious medium/psychic performance though there is a segment in which he engages with the audience. Some rough edges.

Quirky, Great singing, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You're interested in the story of a psychic medium and how he came into his own successes by overcoming many challenges.

Don't see it if You want to see a regular play that tells a story in a more traditional way.

Quirky, Entertaining

See it if you are in the mood for an entertaining cabaret act with a drag queen Greek chorus (the voices are quite good)

Don't see it if you want a fully developed play

Insipid, Indulgent, Disappointing

See it if U must see every show that deals with paranormal experiences, abusive childhoods, coming out, justifications for criminality soaked in camp

Don't see it if U want serious exploration of any of the above topics, instead of pathetic unprofessional presentation by someone who claims unique talents.

Also I do tend towards acceptance of psychic phenomena, reincarnation ,and ... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Tedious, Talented psychic but his show is not polished, Disjointed, Unusual

See it if you want to see a talented psychic connect with your deceased loved ones; you're up for a multi-media show: bio-pic + cabaret + drag act

Don't see it if you expect a traditional play (vs a mixed bag); you want a polished presentation; you hate when shows begin 22 mins late & play filler music

Also The psychic portion of his presentation is SHORT. While it establishes... Read more Read less

Deadly, Excruciating

See it if You believe in psychics. You like musical numbers performed by a deliberately flamboyant chorus.

Don't see it if You must sit through thirty minutes of YouTube Freddie Mercury and Queen followed by a singing drag queen and a group playing People Are

Also Strange before you get to see the guy you came for, Thomas John. John ... Read more Read less

Great singing, Funny, Entertaining

See it if Psychic and medium tells the story of his life mixed with good songs and funny dances, performed by five talented actors.

Don't see it if Think that all mediums are liars, prefer show with the plot

Also Messages from the dead relatives to some of the audience members

Quirky, Dizzying, Entertaining

See it if you believe in an afterlife and that psychic mediums can communicate with the dead. Definitely a work in progress so patience is a must

Don't see it if you’re a non-believer or if you’re offended by foul language or a deeply personal heartbreaking story of a very abusive childhood

Also Some numbers were very good but one or two make you wonder why they ar... Read more Read less

Thought-provoking, Refreshing, Fluffy, Clever, Entertaining

See it if You want a new kind of show, singing, digital, talking, audience interaction show. You enjoy smaller theatre setting. Like campy shows.

Don't see it if You are not into psychic situations. You get bored easily. You like traditional shows. You find biographies boring.

Also I went in with no expectation. The show gave us a biographical take on... Read more Read less

Quirky, Clever, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy a psychic medium coupled with an autobiographical musical experience. There is a sweetness to Thomas and his storytelling.

Don't see it if You are looking for a traditional broadway experience.

Overrated, Disappointing

See it if you are hopeful that Thomas John might just vibe on one of your deceased loved ones you want to see the happy boys singing and dancing

Don't see it if you are looking for a finished production you are looking for anything worthwhile

Also See something else... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Funny, Different, Clever

Don't see it if you are looking for big production

Thought-provoking, Raunchy, Quirky, Great singing, Edgy

See it if You like musicals that are presented through read aloud and video

Don't see it if You are offended by topics such as abuse and being gay
