Entertaining, Funny, Silly, Campy, Stupid

See it if It's silly, stupid, over the top & totally amusing. A guilty pleasure just like reality tv. I'm slightly embarrassed that I enjoyed it.

Don't see it if You've never seen the Kardashians or don't like reality tv. It's trashy & crass with bad singing & stupid jokes but for some reason it works

Entertaining, Original, Silly, Fun, Great singing

Entertaining, Raunchy, Quirky, Hilarious, Themes straight out of the headlines

See it if Entertaining straight from the headlines spoof of the Kardasian clan. I usually hate these parodies, but this one had me LOL.

Don't see it if you are uncomfortable with the "f" word or sexual innuendoes. It is really a lot of fun, and I never saw even one minute of their TV show.

Clever, Funny, Hilarious

See it if you are looking for a ridiculously relevant show - I don't watch the Kardashians but still found it really funny!

Don't see it if aren't interested in pop culture - it plays very much into the life of this family and the world of television.

Banal, Exquisite, Hilarious, Raunchy, Entertaining

See it if You're looking for a night out laughing at parodies of americas most dramatic family

Don't see it if Youre very sensitive to transphhobic or dirty jokes, or looking for a deep show with a meaning. This is not that show.

72
Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Quirky, Fluffy

See it if You're out for a frivolous laugh set to music with characters that closely resemble and poke fun at the famous reality TV family.

Don't see it if You require any substance, meaning or message. This play is just for fun, but not as funny as I hoped it would be.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Edgy, Hilarious

See it if You want to laugh your bottom off!

Don't see it if You're not into cruel humor.

The New York Times
June 26th, 2016

"It’s a noisy concoction that grafts the wacky Kardashian family of reality-TV fame into an extravaganza resembling Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 'Cats'...It’s all pretty stupid. But it’s not without artfulness. Mendoza, Brooks and especially Kennedy are all enjoyable, and there’s even a theme, sort of...The book and lyrics are clever enough for the intended crowd. Summer diversion for theatergoers steeped in Kardashian lore and in a frivolous mood. You know who you are."

“For those familiar with the over-the-top personalities, signature style, and crazy drama of the Kardashian/Jenner family, there is no shortage of cheap and hilarious shots that make for a sidesplitting evening. No one is safe, as relationships, selfie assessments and career choices are all pushed to the forefront as the family shamelessly and relentlessly picks each other apart. The silver lining? Suddenly, your troubles don’t seem so bad.”

Stage Buddy
July 18th, 2016

"Through the fun myriad of personalities that bustle and bumble across the stage, the story highlights the family's chemistry…Although certainly not for everyone and not always on key, the performance exemplifies a certain undeniable truth about our generation...However, it is important to note that one must put all seriousness aside before entering the theatre and simply enjoy the fact that they are indeed not a part of the dazzling, stressful life of a 'Katdashian.'"

Theater In The Now
July 20th, 2016

"It's ridiculously stupid funny. And borrowing the plot of Webber's musical allows them a structure to finally work off of…The completely originally numbers? They lack that spark...There's absolutely no denying that this is the most talented company and strongest spoof material the McSmiths have assembled. There was not a single weak cat in the litter…Director John Duff was granted a gift with this parody. Duff guided his company and creative team to find the humor and deliver."

"Thanks to some clever writing and an ensemble of gifted mimics, the lampoon lands much more effectively than 'SNL’s' shots at the same broad target...Over the course of two largely plotless acts, though, the evening’s sketch-like concept gets stretched rather thin...Duff’s molto allegro directorial style and Nolan’s booty-enhancing kostumes and Soudan’s sexy khoreography help keep the energy high."

“All the performers’ acting was solid, highlighted by Bridget Kennedy playing Kourtney Kat, nailing her signature deadpan personality, while never once cracking a smile despite the outrageous lines she spoke...If you’re looking for a fun night in the theater, I highly recommend seeing this show. The songs were catchy, because they’re still stuck in my head. Whether you love the Kardashians, hate them, or don’t think about them at all, you will be laughing till you cry.”

Times Square Chronicles
June 19th, 2016

“If you like tacky theatre, mildly funny jokes, off-key singing that borders on mediocre kommunity theatre, then head on over...Ms. Soudan’s khoreography is about the best part of this tedious, amateurish bland entertainment...This Katextravaganza is mind-numbing, as it falls on its butt. Unless you are drunk or stoned you will be looking to dash, as my guest did at intermission. Me, I was stuck in this liter box.”

The Verge
June 20th, 2016

"Sparkly, loud, and incredibly seductive…There is no real plot to the show, which is fair enough because there's no real plot on 'Keeping up with the Kardashians'…Some of 'Katdashians' was funny, and all of it was beautiful…But as the night wore on, I found myself having less fun than I had imagined…I wished that the show's creators had a little more love for their subjects. Bob and Tobly McSmith settled on one joke per Kardashian and hammered them into joyless goop."
