Funny, Entertaining, Good acting, Good singing, Great staging

See it if you are interested in fun musical that is a combination of a comic crime caper and a show within a show.

Don't see it if you are more interested in darker more serious crime stories or you don't like shows within shows.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Quirky, Cliched

See it if You're looking for a clever, fun night off-Broadway. Great talent, funny show, lots of puns.

Don't see it if You're not interested in a work in progress. You are looking for something serious.

"What's missing from the nondescript music is originality, soul or spirit, and the same can be said about the book. Under the guidance of director James Will McBride, the cast, however, features some strong performances. In addition to Bober, Irion, and Sabulis, these include especially the red-haired Claire Leyden as Cynthia--with a strong, soprano, operatic voice-- and alto Blair Medina as Patricia, who plays the 'Femme Fatale' in 'Three Card Monte.'"

"The basics are there: decent plot, some good songs, a strong sense of what is being spoofed...McBride keeps the piece moving along at a perfect clip and helps his performers find that silly-musical-comedy sweet spot of overacting just the right amount...The music is somewhat generic, which is fine for a spoof, but it would have been nice to have a little more individuality...The cast is also quite strong, with some excellent voices and dancing...A silly, entertaining, fun evening."
