See it if you like to be engrossed in a satisfying mystery story and/or you like a beautiful folk-y score.
Don't see it if you're expecting Broadway-level production values--the budget is small but the writing is interesting and the performances are great.
See it if you like workshop musicals with an otherworldly feel. I liked the choreography, and the songs worked well to convey emotion.
Don't see it if you want a polished production or a comfortable theater. Had a high school auditorium feel, but the performers were committed & engaged.
"The songs are a bland blend of rock and Sondheim-light styling that aim for both theatrical and hip but don't quite hit either...Somewhat shakier is the book, which too often doesn't know what it's trying to communicate...The problems are so integrated into the concept and its presentation that serious restructuring might be the only way to get everything to realign. There's unquestionably good work here...You just sense that they can't see 'Forest Boy' for the trees.”
“'Forest Boy' is incredibly well done...The look is fluid and magical. Gilmour and McKenzie are a perfect pairing for this story, which really has no ending or purpose...In the end, this tale of a psychologically damaged mind and the lengths a deluded personality will go to have a different kind of life just rings with a dull note...No matter how well the score blends pop, theatrical and country and uses the underscoring in a rather thrilling way, this story has no where to go."
