Don't see it if see no humor in our toleration of children's access to weaponry & daily reports of "accidental" shooting deaths
See it if you want to support a play with an important message that approaches gun violence/control in a satiric and outrageous farcical way.
Don't see it if you have to be somewhere in a hurry. It's long and a bit repetitive but its heart is certainly in the right place.
See it if you believe like I do that musicals can be written about anything including children and guns. It is biting satire.
Don't see it if you don't like seeing a work in progress. The end needs work

Don't see it if You find the topic disturbing or disagree with the premise. The play itself was a bit long and uneven.
