Indulgent, Insipid, Raunchy, Boring, Redundant

See it if A one joke premise appeals to you, a world in which intermarriage has diluted the redhead genetic pool. You like obvious sexual humor.

Don't see it if You dont like manic presentations. You dont like profanity and unfunny sexual jokes. This was a very long 85 minutes.

Banal, Cliched, Disappointing, Slow

See it if you're ok with a very mediocre satire, a couple of halfway decent songs and some very hard working performers.

Don't see it if you want effective satire, genuine laughs or emotional content.

Also It does get better but it starts from a real low base... The two lead ... Read more Read less

Sloppy, Disappointing, Excruciating

See it if You want to see one joke played out for 85 minutes. This is sloppy and aimless. A few good songs but you don’t really care.

Don't see it if This needs a lot of work including an actual plot.

B.b.b.a.d., Excruciating, Amateur, Insipid, Banal

See it if you want to support talented performers, even in substandard material; the "celebrity guest star" is one you really want to see.

Don't see it if you haven't already bought tickets; you're a gingerist or have gingerphobia.

Also This is a one-note, one-joke musical (about redheads seeking revenge f... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Quirky, Great singing, Very silly and very stupid

See it if you enjoy a show with a silly theme, save the Redheads. After this show I'm not sure this is a good idea. Talented cast wasted.

Don't see it if you enjoy an intelligent show, drama or comedy. They keep mentioning brunettes and blondes as the enemy and only mentioned females.

Also There is a surprise guest who was the only highlight of the show. Don'... Read more Read less

Clever, Great singing, Indulgent, Slow, Disappointing

See it if You are looking for a show that is a star vehicle for Katie Thompson to show off her pipes of vocal steel.

Don't see it if You are looking for a polished show with a compelling score or, you know, a plot. This show needs some serious editing.

Also "You just wanted to say bitch didn't you."... Read more Read less

Excruciating, English music hall style farce, Preposturous premise, Disappointing

See it if ..you are easily amused by silly shtick. A secret society of redheads wants to save their breed from extinction. Too ludicrous to enjoy.

Don't see it if .. you don't enjoy lame characters or audience participation.

Disappointing, Insipid

See it if It had some ok staging, I guess. And a mildly amusing powerpoint presentation. Most of the singing was decent.

Don't see it if The songs frequently didn't rhyme, there was fat shaming, the songs were not good, and the jokes weren't funny. Avoid.

Banal, Disappointing, Slow, Excruciating

See it if ...you want an excruciating experience and you are trapped in the theater.

Don't see it if ...you like your freedom.

Slow, Disappointing

See it if You just want to see Katie Thompson.

Don't see it if You want to actually see a musical with substance.

Also I went as I'm a fan of Katie Thompson, but left the theater completely... Read more Read less

"Aggressively mediocre new musical...Andy Sandberg’s directing doesn’t help clarify the incoherent storytelling. The most surprising aspect of the evening is its bilious undertone...At least the very funny Mr. Loehr makes the most of the situation as the overeager, tireless GJ, who has never met ...

“The musical-theater equivalent of those old Sarah McLachlan commercials...Vacillate between dead seriousness and unfunny camp...There isn't much plot, and what is there is hard to follow...Sullivan's dance steps are rudimentary; the cast members run amok and are in desperate need of pulling back...

“Spirited, tuneful and fabulously performed but lacking a strong plot...As a full-length musical, it’s a tiresome experience...The book is a meager framework that doesn’t go very far narratively, and strives for hilarity but doesn’t achieve it. Thompson’s songs are an accomplished amalgam of pop,...

"Broad, campy, musically patchy, and superficially funny...With its cheesy look and single, upstage keyboardist, the show…feels more Off-Off than Off Broadway. The over-sung songs, which run the gamut from pop to rock to gospel, are generic and forgettable. Andy Sandberg's excessively emphatic di...
