“Convoluted, confusing and pointless, this overwrought tale of the psychological examination of a serial killer with multiple personalities might have made for an interesting dramatic thriller along the lines of ‘Agnes of God.’ Instead, ‘Interview: A New Musical,’ is a musical…Composer Soo Hyun Huh’s original music is a fine and eclectic assortment of modern melodies. The English lyrics are written by Bryan Michaels. The combined results are stilted and pedestrian." Full Review
See it if you like psychological thrillers! It's a show that you definitely have to pay attention to and work to follow.
Don't see it if you want a fun, relaxing show. This is anything but that
See it if You like non-traditional musicals, and you are a fan of the genres of thriller and mystery. The music and singing are great, too.
Don't see it if You want a clear plot. This one is really confusing for me.
See it if High energy arresting performance by Bardier. Deitlein has a commanding stage presence. Kommor fiercely committed. Interesting violin music.
Don't see it if Show is much less than the sum of its talented parts. Confusing, convoluted claptrap. Theater too cold. No solution without intermission.
Also Nice minimalist set. Violinist ran for her coat at conclusion.
See it if You like off beat musicals, mediocre music, overacting, talented young actors
Don't see it if You require a clear plot, realistic story, this was a mess - convoluted story,,melodramatic, ridiculous portrayal of multiple personalities
See it if you want a multilayered murder mystery musical drama with psychological overtones. Pay attention to the lyrics as they explain the plot.
Don't see it if you need to have a story spoon fed to you without complexities. You only want a feel good musical.
See it if You have been waiting for refreshing original theater production and new musical style. You want to see acting that will be hallmark legend.
Don't see it if You are not into serious psycological drama and fast unfolding plots & characterizations. You want lighter happier traditional musicals.
See it if You like psychological drama,musicals,are interested in disassociation,enjoy actors playing multiple personality
Don't see it if You aren't interested in psychology or don't like musicals
See it if You enjoy musicals which actually have more in common with opera than musicals. You enjoy stories with a psychological theme.
Don't see it if You can't watch shows that are graphic in their representation of horrific acts ! You don't like shows with more singing than dialogue.
See it if You want a mash up of Shutter Island and Split. You like cool lighting.
Don't see it if You care about hearing the words (some poor diction). You're tired of villains linked to mental health issues.
See it if If you enjoy one-dimensional overacting by one character who keeps switching between multiple personalities and writhing on the floor
Don't see it if If you want a comprehensible plot since that's not here. Had no idea who "NoName" or any one of his other personalities was trying to be.
See it if You want to see a play about a person with multiple personalities. You want to see good singing and acting.
Don't see it if You are uncomfortable with dealing with mental health issues. You don't like performances that deal with flash backs.
See it if You have an evil sense of humor and find ridiculously over-the-top dramas hysterical. Messy plot, waaaaay over acted and -- a musical? Why?
Don't see it if You're expecting the show described in the press releases. You'll be disappointed
See it if You want to see cutting edge theater delving into the mind of a schizophrenic. You have to fit the pieces together.
Don't see it if You have no interest in psychology and expect some comic relief in a tense drama. Don't see it for the music.
See it if You want to hear great voice & see tremendous performances, especially by Josh Bardier. You want an interesting, riveting story.
Don't see it if You go to musicals to hear great music: the music is discordant & droning.
See it if you're going in with no expectations, prepared for one plot twist after another, all just barely held together by the storyline/acting.
Don't see it if you expect a 100% serious, tragic, and well thought out show. At times, it felt so over-the-top that it tipped from dramatic into the absurd
