Disappointing, Confusing, Confused, High school, Relevant theme

See it if Good story & Music. Needs tons of work. Book:7.5/Music:8/Lyrics:4.5 Acting:6.5/Singing:5.5 Why 20 people onstage at all times?

Don't see it if Every idea thrown in. Needs crazy editing. Embarrassing Choreography Lyrics don't sound proper English: Baffling/Confusing/Unintelligible.

Cute, Relevant, Disappointing, Amateurish, Needs work

See it if The story & concept are good but execution is not great. The cast has nice energy. Intimate scenes play out better than the bigger ones

Don't see it if Choreography & direction need lots of work. The ensemble dancing&blocking is distracting & cringworthy. Act2 better than Act1 (way to long)

Banal, Disappointing, Insipid, Indulgent, Cliched

See it if You are in the mood for a very amateurish production by a group of "not ready for prime time players". You know someone in the group !

Don't see it if You are looking for a satisfying evening watching and listening to a professional theatre company perform a well-written play.

Entertaining, Ambitious, Slow, Under construction, Great singing

See it if The opportunity to see a musical written by a South Korean; to see a talented diversified multi-talented cast; Importance of family

Don't see it if Tired of immigration problems and Trump jokes; Never saw a musical in its early stages of performance Impatient with a meandering storyline

Amateurish, Unintelligible, Cringeworthy choreography, Impossible to sing songs, Well intentioned but painfully bad

See it if you are in a forgiving mood & you feel sorry for young actors performing bad songs, bad choreography & a bad script to badly played music.

Don't see it if you want lyrics you can understand, real dancers, good actors, a plausible plot or a theater with decent a/c.

Engaging, Refreshing, Relevant, Uneven, Predictable

See it if you like stories of people who marry for a green card, then unexpectedly fall in love. For some reason I do, so I enjoyed this earnest show.

Don't see it if you mind predictability.

56
Slow, Relevant, Uneven

See it if You want to support an effort by a group (immigrants, particularly Korean) underrepresented in US theater.

Don't see it if You think there should be a wall between the US and Mexico

66
Great singing

See it if Great singing in a comedy of trying to not get deported with a fake marriage. Really want to support younger Asian American artists.

Don't see it if Plot barely makes sense. Ok songs but the cast does have a lot of enthusiasm.
