Cute, Silly, Well-done stupidness, Bare bones fun, Adorable performances

See it if you like the TV show Friends for which it sends up & spoofs; a high energy bare bones musical comedy with funny fine performances & score.

Don't see it if you can't sit on the front row because the audience sits on the same level which makes for awful sight lines--the worst theater in NYC.

Funny, Banal, Nostalgic

See it if ...you can appreciate some close impersonations; ...want to relive the coziness of the 90ies ...you want a smart, tiny and competent night

Don't see it if ...you want the characters to take on a life of their own, they are really just reenacting the storylines from the show.

Entertaining, Funny

See it if If you are a fan of the show Friends. The show was entertaining and moved along quickly.

Don't see it if If you have never seen the television show, you will be lost.

Funny, Great acting, Raunchy

See it if You really, REALLY like Friends, because there are a lot of inside jokes that some fans in the audience were eating up.

Don't see it if Crude humor isn't your thing.

70
Disappointing

See it if I mean if you're a fan of Friends it might be worth seeing once, but I didn't love it. "Monica" and "Phoebe" are worth the admission.

Don't see it if You'll get mad if they do bits that aren't nearly around the same season.

Ambitious, Quirky, Fluffy, Funny

See it if You like Friends, comedy, and plots that are not complex

Don't see it if You haven't seen Friends, you like complex and deep characters, or dramatic shows

60
Slow, Funny, Cliched

See it if you're an avid fan of the show and you got cheap tickets.

Don't see it if You're looking for a true parody. The actors did a great job with their characters but the writing needs work. Felt too long at times.

Great singing, Great acting, Great staging, Relevant, Delightful

See it if You have kids (very family oriented), want something different (staging is very unique)

Don't see it if You have other shows that are higher on your priority list (I enjoyed this show, but I would not say it is my favorite)

60
Fluffy, Mixed bag, Intermittently amusing, Obvious

See it if You know every episode of Friends and are amused by the mere recognition of specific memorable moments from the show. The 3 women are great.

Don't see it if You need wit or clever lyrics in your satire & are annoyed by sweaty overwrought performances (not by all the actors, but by more than one).

77
Funny, Good impressions, Quirky

See it if You like or even don't like Friends because they make fun of it and also point out a lot of flaws in Friends and want a laugh

Don't see it if You really hate Friends, don't want the flaws pointed out, or don't know the show that well. If you want a musical with great music.

Fluffy, Indulgent

See it if You know the TV show Friends inside and out and would enjoy some jokes about the show. The actress playing Rachel does a good voice.

"It's nothing the sitcom didn't send up itself. The biggest laughs are often for the lines cribbed directly from the show. A roast loses its teeth when the subject beats you to the punch line. None of this is the fault of the performers, who are giving their all to have fun with the material and ...

“The well-written book hits the series' main plot points...The singing is uneven, but the uniformly strong acting makes up for these vocal deficiencies. And while the show occasionally veers into slapstick, the parody remains at a mostly even pitch...The final number gets at the rare and magical ...
