See it if A good spoof on the big bang theory. You liked friends spoof. If you like irony.

Don't see it if Can be riske and raunchy at times for kids.one of the worst shows this year.

Cute, Zany, Funny, Raunchy, Clever

See it if Raunchy, with some good songs. The cast & audience had fun. The best part was when Raj came out as gay and sang “Only Hard for Howard.”

Don't see it if You are unfamiliar with the TV series. I’ve seen sharper, funnier parodies. For all its raunchiness, this was tame.

Raunchy, Great staging, Great singing, Delightful, Clever

See it if No-limits outlandish dream-state musical nerd herd parody. Pains taken for character approximation intonation capture.Strong vocals.Gay Raj.

Don't see it if Q from "Star Trek" narrates dream.Poor quality audio. With any parody, episode familiarity is a must. Busy, cramped set.Raunch.Robot Bernie.

Also "You were born gay, the rest is drag."

Raunchy, Quirky, Cliched, Confusing, Funny

See it if you love anything that even mentions Big Bang Theory. Sheldon is excellent. It's a pretty fun way to spend an evening.

Don't see it if you expect a real parody of Big Bang Theory. This was more of a musical using characters from the show than a creative parody.

Also I've never experienced such drastically opposing views of the same pla... Read more Read less

Fluffy, Raunchy, Edgy, Funny, Great acting

See it if you enjoy the TV show. The characters are brought to life and lovingly mocked. They get to do things that could not be done on network TV.

Don't see it if you prefer Broadway theatre. This show is clearly meant for an off-Broadway audience. It's raunchy and rough around the edges.

Entertaining, Quirky, Clever, Great acting

See it if You have a friend ion the show. All the actors do their best with a not so great book, but they really channel their on screen personas.

Don't see it if You don't get or like The Big Bang Theory. The plot line is a little weak and there is not enough AMY and Sheldon together.

Also I went because I had a friend in the show. I was very happy to be ther... Read more Read less

Silly plot, Banal, Slow, Disappointing

See it if you want to hear a really good likeness of Sheldon and Raj

Don't see it if you are not a star wars or star trek fan - that was the plot of story and it was a bit confusing at times.

Also Theater was small and it was very difficult to see the characters if y... Read more Read less

The plot was just horrible and left many of the audience asking for refunds at intermission. The only actor that was any good was Sheldon (John McGowan)...Direc...
