See it if You like to see humor in child rearing from birth to graduation. A terrific musical that is part of the NYMF, sung by 3 talented women.
Don't see it if You expect an elaborate production Dislike profanity, sexual references,take life too seriously
See it if you want to see a funny show with entertaining songs about what it is like to be a mother.
Don't see it if you don't like shows about motherhood or shows that can get a little bit vulgar at times.
"Dunlap and Stotts have composed a smorgasbord of toe-tapping songs to accompany their journey, which feels more like a revue than a full book musical...Berliner maintains a lighthearted, comical tone throughout...Even through the blinding glitz of its manic showmanship, 'MotherFreakingHood!' cannot help but betray the creepy classism that undergirds the mommy-industrial complex...If you can get beyond the eugenic undertones, this musical is a hoot."
"A fun and fast-paced comedy that celebrates the joys of parenting but doesn’t gloss over the unglamorous parts...Though it acknowledges those realities and others, it doesn’t probe them with too much emotional depth or move beyond its identity as a lighthearted farce. The songs are frothy, airy, and easily digestible, and it’s clear that laughter is the main goal...The three leading ladies are delightfully comic and show off their powerful pipes with the belt-heavy score."
"A bawdy bunch of songs laced with an abundance of four-letter words, a dose or two of scatological language, and a curious interest in bodily fluids...There is nothing new in the musical...The music is engaging though unremarkable and sometimes derivative...The book and lyrics are the stuff of TV sitcom...The best part of the musical is the cast...Their ability to interpret the lyrics and deliver their songs is enjoyable and rescues the rest of the musical from the mundane and deplorable."
