Bloody, Surprising, Gutsy, Hilarious, Bold

Quirky, Great writing, Masterful, Great staging, Great singing

See it if You love musical theatre, mixed with I bit of comedy horror & a message. It may be off-broadway, but production values outdo some mainstream

Don't see it if You’re easily offended, otherwise see this whilst you can. Good songs, costume changes, make members, pyrotechnics - what more can you ask!

Raunchy, Outrageous, Funny

See it if you like clever, over-the-top-crazy musicals that are also hilarious and fun with great staging, cool cast and an unhinged Steven Pasquale.

Don't see it if you're averse to simulated sex & violence scenes, don't like loud music, get easily offended, or not in the mood to go along on a wild ride.

Adult, Fun, Raunchy, Funny, Great singing

See it if You want a new, gross, fun, campy romp. Akin to Little Shop and other “horror” musical comedies. Great songs and talent! Sick!
