Disappointing, Great singing, Funny, Quirky

See it if If you like a king Ralph theme to music. Some really good songs and some actors were good.

Don't see it if First 50 minutes were good, last 20 of ist act got slow. Second act needs to be reworked.

Banal, Fluffy, Cute, Unoriginal, Long

See it if This is a 2hr plus show that should be 60 min. A slight cuteness doesn’t overcome the underwhelming-ness. Most of the audience left at int.

Don't see it if You want high quality theater or didn’t like the movie King Ralph.... same plot.

"king ralph" light: substitute queen for king, add music; ok but without wit or panache

See it if high spirited musical tells story of unpolished NJ cocktail waitress made Queen of England; genial/winning performances

Don't see it if predictable plot as King Ralph redux; singing not at high level, tunes meh, lyrics simplistic, 2 pianos/drums accompaniment thin

Entertaining, Funny, Fluffy

See it if you enjoy a light comedy about an unlikely person becoming queen and what results. Some cute songs, not memorable. Nice use of small stage.

Don't see it if you like sophisticated comedy or a big theater. There is no elevator in this small theater so there are steps.

Funny, Amateurish, Ambitious, Quirky, Silly

See it if you want to see a play that is mildly entertaining with a cast that really tries their best. Needs a rewrite and a partial recast.

Don't see it if you want a play is that fully formed. You get the feeling that this is a work in progress. Read more

Amateurish, Sophomoric farce, Not very funny, Poor singing, Uninteresting

See it if you accept amateurish singing and production values, very silly, non-nuanced farcical script with a cast that puts forth maximum effort.

Don't see it if you expect a "professional" presentation, some nuance in a farce, adequate singing ability and a spoof with consistent laughs.

Slow, Fluffy, Ambitious

See it if It’s a cute show with potential but it needs serious trimming and dances on the edge of “corny”

Don't see it if Remember in the show Friends when the gang had to endure Joey’s off broadway plays? By the end of act 1, it was like watching a Joey show.

Quirky, Resonant, Refreshing, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you enjoy silly plays that end happily

Don't see it if you are looking for real drama and a thought provoking play.

“An erratically entertaining fish out of water tale...A zany fantasy...Though spirited, it’s sluggish...There’s repetitiousness, extraneousness and a wan presentation. With editing that enforces more of the plot and higher production values it’s conceivable that its evident whimsical charms could be whipped up into a madcap entertainment. For now, it’s best viewed as a workshop with potential that showcases the game cast...Does achieve a level of the frothy escapism it aspires to.”

"While 'God Save Queen Pam is for adults,' it appeals to that inner, teen girl...The twinkling, piano melodies add a brightness to script and heighten the delightful silliness of its puns...Quinlan gives this character such a warm amiability, and a bright-eyed optimism that counters well with the friendly, but stiff upper lips...'God Save Queen Pam' goes by quickly with brisk laughs, but is surprisingly more insightful than at first glance."

"I was expecting this show to be more of a farce. However, I am happy to say that is not. While it is a funny show, it is not over the top...It is not a one woman show, however, and one or two of the other characters do seem a bit underdeveloped. However, all in all, it is a good entertaining show that seems very timely in light of the fact that in actuality an American actress recently married the Prince of England."

"Erin Murray Quinlan in the star role as Pam is so likeable you just want to stick around after the performance and tag along for an after-show snack...This show is just plain FUN. There is no hidden message or agenda, just pure escapism and entertainment. The story is well-told and the characters are likeable and entertaining...The show is laugh-out-loud funny in many scenes."
