Entertaining, Scrappy, Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent

See it if you're interested in really smart, scrappy downtown theater that has both popular appeal and experimental flair.

Don't see it if you have no interest in Meryl Streep. A lot of what makes this show work is the remarkable way these performers are able to capture her.

Clever, Funny, Great acting

See it if You love Meryl and want to see all of her characters locked in a house together vying to win via a reality tv comedy setting.

Don't see it if You want a serious production. It's a very off Broadway production.

Funny, Quirky, Fluffy

See it if If you love campy shows. You must love Meryl Steep and have seen many of her movies in order to appreciate this show. The writing is clever.

Don't see it if You are not into drag or spoofs of reality TV. Or, if you are not a Meryl Streep fan, this show is not for you.

The New York Times

“Built on a concept that could have made for an ace sketch but instead takes up nearly five derrière-numbing hours…The evening starts off promisingly, if a bit shambolically…A lot of time is taken up by in-jokes about the movies. Songs spoofing well-known tunes eat more precious minutes…This might make Andrew Neisler’s production, for the Tank, sound like a fun evening in the East Village, which is when I need to remind you goes on for hours."
