Absorbing, Entertaining, Great singing, Hilarious

See it if You love catchy pop tunes, and hilarious scenarios involving how far people will go to get on stage.

Don't see it if Make sure you stay for Act II, which is much shorter and involves revenge scenarios and a very funny chase during a live show. 1 hr 55 min.

Amateurish, Cliched, Disappointing, Indulgent, Insipid

See it if You are friends with a cast or crew member. You have a passion unquenched for back stage musicals. Shows that are going nowhere are for you.

Don't see it if You want a polished musical with good writing and a believable plot. All that matters to you is to be able to say "well they tried".

"'The Real Actors of NYC' is proof that lavish costumes, gigantic sets, lush orchestras, and full-scale dance numbers are not a prerequisite for a great musical. Quite the opposite rings true for Judd’s shrewd and observant show...What makes his piece so refreshing is that Judd’s humor is sharp and witty without being cynical...Judd’s score will likely not be preserved in the canon of musical theater, but it serves the show appropriately and, for the most part, the cast navigates it well."
