Cabaret show, Campy, Quirky, Disappointing, Great singing

See it if you're a redhead? Idk. If you're a fan of Katie Thompson, and you're down for a goofy cabaret show set in a 'redheads anonymous' meeting.

Don't see it if you're expecting a plot-driven book musical about badass redheads staging a revolution or something, like I was.

Also I went because I'm a fan of Katie and love her music and it sounded co... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Delightful, Funny, Campy, Pleasantly surprising

See it if you'd enjoy seeing a campy musical comedy with a small cast (and one surprise guest!) about an underground group of radicalized redheads.

Don't see it if you don't like campy musicals that are short on story but long on concept.

Also The singing was a pleasant surprise in this otherwise modest and unass... Read more Read less

Great singing, Quirky, Disjointed, Entertaining, Funny

See it if you'd like to see some very talented vocalists sing a mixed-quality (some songs were really great) original score with some occasional humor

Don't see it if you need a well-written book, more than just a piano, or don't appreciate raunchy humor.

Also Surprise guest Ariana DeBose was outstanding! There wasn't much of a p... Read more Read less

Quirky, Indulgent, Confusing, Great singing

See it if you like Monty Python or absurdist theater. The singing is good & the premise is intriguing. Great singing and awesome surprise guest!

Don't see it if you want a show that makes a lot of sense. I got the point but the show meandered all over the place. Giveaways didn't obscure the problems

Entertaining, Great singing, Fluffy

See it if You want a show that is light on story and staging but funny and campy with excellent singing

Don't see it if You want a story of any depth or breadth, campy singing won't charm you through the 90 minutes

Clever, Funny, Great singing, Fluffy, Quirky

See it if You love Katie Thompson and her music, or small, concept Musicals with funny, clever lyrics and catchy tunes. Amazing voices!

Don't see it if You need a meatier plot. It’s pretty much a conceptual concert of Katie Thompson’s music. It’s really good! But the plot is not fleshed out.

Clever, Great singing, Disappointing, Quirky

See it if You are happy enough with greatly talented singers. It certainly had energy and pep. The performers were likable.

Don't see it if You need a good solid story line along with the great singing. This just didn’t until the last 15 minutes or so. They tried really hard.

See it if You are into silly premises. You agree with Johnny Carson when he said "Buy the premise, buy the bit." You appreciate satire.

Don't see it if You're looking for a good story.

Don't see it if you don’t like musicals, and if you don’t want to be entertained.

Great singing, Raunchy, Disappointing, Cliched, Funny

See it if You saw this show at NYMF back in the day and are curious to see if it changed. Or you like dumb humor.

Don't see it if You saw it at NYMF forever ago and would hate to see that it hasn't changed. At all. Or if you can't deal with dumb humor.

Funny, Great singing, Fluffy

See it if There is a great cast. The book is weak. I loved the singers.

Don't see it if It is a silly piece. It has a talented creative team but The book needs work. It belongs in the Fringe festival. Marissa Rosen is hilarious.

See it if You enjoy singers who show off their voice. If you enjoy red head humor that is not too deep.

Don't see it if You want a complicated plot, don't care about red headed issues, want more of a story.

Clever, Funny, Great singing, Hilarious, Quirky

See it if you enjoy off-beat musical comedy. The cast of 4 (plus guest star) has amazing voices and comedic timing, and it's a fun, fresh show.

Don't see it if didn't like Little Shop of Horrors or are easily offended by R-rated humor.

“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.

"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...
