Great acting, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful, Clever

See it if Dated in the best possible way. Who-done-it with 40's & 50's cultural references. Terrific cast, mostly playing multiple roles.

Don't see it if Don't expect deep insights or expensive production values. But that's part of the fun. Read more

Clever, Funny, Entertaining, Dated, but not in a bad way; more retro, Delightful

See it if It's a throwback to plays of Broadway's golden age. Pointedly so. With a drag queen in the lead role being treated as just another actress.

Don't see it if I enjoyed it a lot; it felt like a classic play, & the cast was clearly having fun. There's nothing exactly NEW here, but it's worth seeing.

Funny, Well acted, Campy, Indulgent, Clever

See it if Castle & Finley have great fun w/this campy send-up/sequel to 'All About Eve' A goofy, loving tribute to all murderous back stage intrigues

Don't see it if The actors (most playing multiple roles) are all over the top while Veronica Traymore (playing herself) gives new dimension to Diva madness

Indulgent, Fun, Quirky, Great acting, Fluffy

See it if you like silly who-done-it plays set in the 40's/50s.

Don't see it if you are turned off by campy shows with minimal production elements.

Fluffy, Murder mystery, Slow, Campy

See it if you want light entertainment, with the "theater diva" played by a man in drag. Hard-working cast can't overcome the limited script.

Don't see it if you require lots of laughs. This has a few...and a clever ending, but the script doesn't have sufficient zingers.
