Nice singing, Banal, Insipid, Slow, Disappointing

See it if mini-bios interest you. The hard working cast doubles and triples to make this show happen.

Don't see it if you're not into short biographic plays with seemingly unrelated music. Likewise the subjects don't seem to have much in common beyond fame

Unusual, Edgy, Ambitious, Clever

See it if you want to experience a very unusual play about 4 people who die.Some of the acting is very good and the stories are both sad and amusing.

Don't see it if you want to keep your illusions about the characters of Alfalfa and Superman. Don't go if the subject of death disturbs you. Read more
