In the fiercely competitive world of girls’ soccer, how far would you go for your child? At curtain, Coach Nick lies dead at center stage, impaled by a corner flag, while a chorus of soccer players sings in his honor. Kathy, a soccer mom, steps forward to tell us the story of how all this began… An official selection of the 2017 New York Musical Festival Next Link Project.
See it if you enjoy great voices singing good songs. PLW is meant to be satirical, but school sports headlines have been crazier. Not enough laughs.
Don't see it if you want tight plotting. Act I is far superior to Act II. Too many unnecessary songs. Too much unnec'y swearing. Altho new, PLW feels dated.
See it if You enjoy watching fueds between women. Act 2 is especially fun and campy w/ many laugh out loud moments. 2 leading ladies were great.
Don't see it if The setup takes too long & things don't pick up until the end of Act1. Show could easily be condensed to 80-90min & Would be much stronger.
See it if You want to see a delightful, "adult" musical done by some very good voices
Don't see it if you want your satires to be satirical. This is much closer to reality. The book and lyrics fail to bring it over the top to absurdity.
See it if You want to see a hilarious satire of the world of soccer moms, with a razor-sharp script and great songs.
Don't see it if You're bothered by a cast that may not have the greatest voices, or you're a soccer mom who would be offended by such a caricature.
See it if you enjoy solid singing and an edgy story. Fun to watch, but needs some work adding more melodies and a different angle in the story.
Don't see it if you don't like repetative motives. The storytelling is static and lacking action. Needs additional twist, ex. adding kids perspective.
See it if want to explore the darkness in a suburban neighborhood. Are a soccer mom who needs to relax. Want a funny cast.
Don't see it if want a stronger second act. Dislike raunchiness and murder.
See it if You like a funny musical that is a bit twisted. Opens with a death. Over involved sport parents exposed.
Don't see it if You are offended by cursing - there is a lot. And some of the gay references should be dialed back.
See it if i loved this show. the songs are greatwith. nick dromard was great as coach as were all the leads. was entertained & could c this make it
Don't see it if you cant relate to helicopter parents and iphone tranced kids
See it if you want to see a thoroughly entertaining satire about today's superheated, competitive kids' sports in suburbia. Hilarious, fun, a bit edgy
Don't see it if you don't like satire, cursing (there's a fair amount of it) and sex/gendered stereotyping (some of the "gay" comments were a bit offensive)
See it if you like new musicals, a wonderful cast, an interesting story full of contemporary issues and great direction.
Don't see it if You only like to go to revivals of shows you've seen before!
See it if You want to see suburban soccer moms duke it out for dominance in fabulously satirical song and choreographed routines.
Don't see it if You are offended by writing that includes jokes about being gay, or you are tired of seeing desperate housewives vie for the man's attention
See it if you want to see the everyday turn into the absurd.
Don't see it if you aren't willing to consider the dark side of parenting in the upper-class suburbs.
