Clever, Quirky, Slow, Good acting

See it if You like film noir, clever spoofs, and broad humor -- with good acting. The show is somewhat slow, but reasonably enjoyable nonetheless.

Don't see it if You want something serious. This is a gentle mocking of 1950s sensibilities, early television programming and ads, and film noir style.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Edgy

See it if you remember the Million Dollar Movie, love 30s crime flicks, and believe TV Dinners can save a marriage. Great fun!

Don't see it if parodies aren't your thing. This is an imaginative, gender-bending take on a fun era. Like it or pass it up!

Entertaining, Funny, Delightful, Clever, Great writing

See it if You are an early era TV addict & old B movies fan and loved all the old commercials of yesteryear. You like zany fun & spoofs.

Don't see it if You prefer regular normal plays with traditional casting or have little humor. You unfortunately missed out on the glorious fun of early TV. Read more

Disappointing, Great acting, Overrated, Off the mark, Great costumes

See it if you can appreciate a group of talented hardworking performers lost in a script that misses the mark, and to see a great a great curtain call

Don't see it if you're a Charles Busch fan and can't help but constantly wish that he had been the playwright.

Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Great acting, Funny

See it if You're a fan of classic movies. The show is a lot of fun and very funny. Loved the entire cast.

Don't see it if ...you don't have a sense of humor. This is the kind of show we need right now...a healthy dose of silly and fun.

TheaterScene.net
December 6th, 2016

"There are a few laughs in this insufficient spoof…In terms of writing and execution this production never rises to the heights of accomplished lunacy necessary to succeed as a full-fledged antic exhibition...The double entendre, pun title is the cleverest thing about it…The plot is a meager rehash of familiar elements of the genre. At 70 minutes, it has the potential to be at best a breezy diversion but its stale conception is further undermined by the routine direction."

"Immediately we know we are in for some fun...The 18 characters are played by only six actors in the cast, a fascinating feat!...Embracing and melding two separate genres like early live television with 1930s gangster films would at first appear to be an effort in 'too much.' However, writer Todd Michael and director Synge Maher pull it off with a madcap flair and an ensemble with the side-splitting talent to nail down their roles."
