Great singing, Funny, Quirky, Disappointing, Entertaining

Funny, Entertaining, Insipid, Great singing

See it if Single-concept musical about finding your tribe and relishing them. Surprise guest every night.

Don't see it if Slight and inoffensive satire flouts Off-B'way expectations. Only one musical instrument is more cabaret than musical.

Ambitious, Disappointing, Frenetic

See it if If you are red-headed you might enjoy the conceit of red-headedness under siege. Broad comedy,energetic performances.

Don't see it if Very off-off Broadway. Bare bones production. Cute idea, shaky follow-through.Forgettable music, Keyboard accompaniment.

Also Sounded like a cute idea, fighting the extinction of red-heads. But th... Read more Read less

Feels dead and lacks tread

See it if You know someone in the production or get cheap tickets. Convenient venue.

Don't see it if You value your time or hate silly plots.

Slow, Repetitive, Disappointing, Unique, Different

See it if like shows that are completely unique and don't necessarily have a linear plot.

Don't see it if you prefer your shows with a very definite beginning, middle and end.

Redheads fighting for survival in a world overrun with blondes and brunettes

See it if could redheads be extinct by 2100 leaving a world filled with blondes and brunettes... not if they can spread the word to procreate!

Don't see it if there’s a lot of hard work happening on that stage! funny moments;some good songs highlight vocal talents... deserves more development

Entertaining, Clever, Ambitious, Great singing, Quirky

See it if you like a good farce performed by a super talented cast. I wanted to leave after 15 minutes but it got better with time

Don't see it if silly sketches like those on SNL do not appeal to you. You won't like this if you can't appreciate the effort of the cast

Also Why no photo of a little Ron Howard...or did I miss it ? Why no mentio... Read more Read less

Banal, Cliched, Quirky, Raunchy, Funny

See it if You are a redhead and want to see what other members of the tribe think of the extinction of redheads.

Don't see it if you have a better comedic show to go to.

Funny, Clever, Quirky

See it if you're a fan of the composer, because this felt like a jukebox musical of her best songs. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Don't see it if you're expecting the next Urinetown.

Mean-spirited, Unmemorable music/sloppy lyrics, Exasperating, Strong voices, Amateurish

See it if you love musicals and want to hear piano and good voices. Some viewers laughed, but I was put off. RRED suffered from a wispy premise and...

Don't see it if unskilled writing (book/lyrics). RRED tried to be fun, but fell terribly flat. No story arc, no character development, no point! Unpleasant.

During previews
Banal, Disappointing, Indulgent, Insipid, Fluffy

See it if It is not worth seeing. Some good singers, plot is all over the place. Goes in for the laughs but falls way short of anything good.

Don't see it if If you want a good musical with somewhat of a story. It needs to be re thought and reworked .

During previews
Little funny, Quirky, Raunchy, Disappointing

See it if You want a few laughs and no story line.

Don't see it if If you want to story you won't get one. It all over the place.

During previews
Lacking in plot, The single concept is difficult to sustain for an entire show, 8th grade humor, Raunchy and offensive

See it if Want 2 C reasonably talented cast try 2 make poorly written material work in a production that has nowhere to go. The singing is fine.

Don't see it if Don't like shows verging on tasteless & uncomfortable w story & characters that feel mean spirited. The cast works hard, but it's unfunny

During previews
Few chuckles / more misses than hits, Confusing / bit dizzying, Ambitious / indulgent, Corny / slap-sticky, Great accompanist / some good singing

See it if Uh, no. Except for the accompanist. Tonight's special-guest was Kristen Mengelkoch. No worries. I didn't know her either.

Don't see it if ...more to come...

During previews
Funny, Clever, Banal, Slow, Quirky

See it if You're redheaded and want a laugh. Or you just want a laugh. It's a show that delivers a couple good jokes well.

Don't see it if You want to see something serious or "deep." There's really not enough funny to fill an hour and a half, either.

During previews
Campy, Energetic singing, Wears out its welcome, Disappointing, Funny concept

See it if You are a redhead.

Don't see it if Sketch comedy is not your thing.

Also One-joke show that seems more suited for sketch comedy. Goes on way to... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Funny, Good acting, Quirky, Good singing

See it if you'll enjoy a funny show well performed by a small cast; singing was especially good.

Don't see it if you won't enjoy a show which is basically a SNL/Improv comedy skit.There wasn't enough to fill 90 minutes. It really dragged towards the end

During previews
Funny, Great singing, Slow, Quirky, Confusing

See it if you just want to hear Katie Thompson's voice and get a few laughs.

Don't see it if you're expecting a tightly structured show or pure fluff.

During previews
Disappointing, Indulgent, Quirky, Great singing

See it if A few strong songs but the show is an unfunny one joke show. Protagonist is mean and doesn’t grow or learn. A laugh here and there.

Don't see it if She’s obviously talented but her team should have given her real feedback on her work. We came away feeling it was pointless.

During previews
Funny, Indulgent, Quirky, Disappointing

See it if You're looking for a silly fun show to occupy an hour of your time, or are a fan of the cast (who all do a good job with the material given)

Don't see it if You haven't the patience for a show where every joke is stretched into 5 minutes until it's no longer funny.

During previews
Clever, Cliched, Fluffy, Funny, This hi-energy musical romp is a one-trick pony, so it runs out of steam about half way through. still a lot of fun.

See it if You'd like to see a show that's fast-paced and funny and will make zero demands on your intelligence--just mindless fun.

Don't see it if You demand some brains and wit along with the zaniness.

During previews
Disappointing, Dizzying, Fluffy, Indulgent, Great singing

See it if You want to see a show that needs a tremendous amount of work on its book to be entertaining.

Don't see it if You want to see a charming funny show.

Also The surprise guest is the one thing that I found really worthwhile.

During previews
Silly, Nice melodies, Great singing, Quirky

See it if You enjoy a silly night out with a fun / talented cast

Don't see it if You need plot or depth . you don't enjoy cabaret songs staged into a thin plot

During previews
Clever, Funny, Great singing, Fluffy, Quirky

See it if you like small casts, a little bit of breaking the fourth wall and requesting a little bit of audience participation and great voices.

Don't see it if you can't see humor in the premise of a secret meeting for a revolutionary, semi-pyramid scheme-y society for the propagation of red heads.

During previews
Disappointing, Great singing, Fluffy, Slow

See it if You want to see REALLY talented singers. Or if (like me) you're a redhead and you just want to enjoy some ginger silliness.

Don't see it if You require your shows to have a plot or substance or good writing. You're bothered by inserted songs that have nothing to do with the show.

Also All of the performers have absolutely incredible voices, and it's a sh... Read more Read less

"Broad, campy, musically patchy, and superficially funny...With its cheesy look and single, upstage keyboardist, the show…feels more Off-Off than Off Broadway.
