59E59 and Prospect Theater Company presents this new musical that immerses audiences in the complex inner life of a young woman and asks: when every choice feels like life and death, how do you turn the key? More…
Mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved...Samantha Brown balances on the edge of her future, car keys in hand. As she sits in the driver's seat, she faces a choice: will she follow in her mother's footsteps, or take the dare of her impetuous best friend and chart a new path?
See it if You liked Next To Normal. This seemed to push a lot of those same buttons for me, maybe a bit more light hearted, at least at first.
Don't see it if You don’t understand metaphor! Or if you don’t remember what it was like to be 17 years old and have your whole world seen so possible.
See it if You liked next to normal or dear evan Hansen. Has a vibe of both if stripped down. Amazing performances. Needs tweaks but still loved it.
Don't see it if You don’t like emotional stories about high schoolers and teen angst.
See it if you like to see 4 talented singers perform as a team. Also some wonderful lighting.. And Jack K. lives again. H.S. to Univ. prob lives ..
Don't see it if If you need more scenery or if you never faced the H.S. graduate problems.
See it if Scenes with the mom (including her extended song) are great.
Don't see it if The 2 younger actresses have screeching voices. Bright lights constantly shine into the audience's eyes. Show drags (1 hr 45) & needs cuts!
See it if You like stories about high school friends and the bonds they develop and share; you are OK with sad stories told with heart and humor.
Don't see it if The play has potential but developmentally, it is in its infancy. Needs more story and editing. Some of the music works but repetitious.
See it if you want to see the great performances from the two leading ladies. Generous score mostly for entertainment value; other elements lacking.
Don't see it if you're looking for great songs. Most were pleasant, yet forgettable. The play itself is entertaining throughout, but cliched/predictable.
See it if You like relatable, accessible music. You like to see good singing, well directed in a small minimal stage. Great band, nice orchestration.
Don't see it if You mind screeching. The lead sometimes oversings but she has a delicate soft modulation so the screech can be unlearnt. You want BIG..
See it if you want to discover & become a fan of Kerrigan and Lowdermilk
Don't see it if you hate newfangled pop musicals, want a big orchestra sound, dislike indecisive protagonists
See it if You're a fan of Kerrigan & Lowdermilk; a fan of extreme belting and a few lovely songs; have strong memories of teenage uncertainty
Don't see it if You want a fully developed musical with a compelling book; are seeking diversity of song
See it if Terribly shrill voices, thin and banal storyline. The target audience is white , middle class, 12 to 16 year old females.
Don't see it if Do not see if you expect adaquate singing and acting.
See it if you’d enjoy an affecting musical gem w/a great score & A+ performances. The audience audibly sniffled at the end. P.S. I NEED A CAST ALBUM!
Don't see it if you’re wrongly influenced by the inexplicably low Show Score average. I am normally in agreement w/the majority here, but NOT in this case.
See it if a musical with an unimaginative plot about teenage angst with minimal staging and generic songs (with 1 or 2 exceptions)
Don't see it if you want a deeper plot or expecting a smaller version of Dear Evan Hansen
See it if You are looking to see a show with an amazingly orchestrated contemporary theatre score sung to perfection.
Don't see it if You want to see a "big" show. You have a limited attention span.
See it if you would like to see a good off-broadway show. The show can be improved upon a little but still we all enjoyed it. The singing was great.
Don't see it if you can't sit for 1 40 mins without an intermission. The show can be trimmed a little. The lyrics for the songs get repetitive.
See it if you want a show about teenage angst.
Don't see it if you want a show where the characters hold your interest. Most songs sound alike and are overly dramatic, some bordering on screaming.
See it if you love talented singers, with more singing than dialog; you enjoy stories about high school seniors
Don't see it if you don't want to see a show that might make you sad (hint, one of the teens dies but you know that early on)
See it if You're a fan of great singing in a story that speaks to the place of women today
Don't see it if you don't like plays without an intermission or are looking for a traditional big musical with a chorus and dancing

Don't see it if You are looking for a more focused, driven show that packs the punch it intends.
See it if You are under thirty or love musical theater more than life itself.
Don't see it if You hate angst ridden teens or having a ghost on stage. Show badly needs either an intermission or cut. Last half hour cast shows off pipes.
See it if you like melodic songs and enjoy good voices and singing. The ensemble - harp, violing and guitar - is great. Decent musical experience.
Don't see it if you are interested in a story more than in music. It also gets somewhat repetative towards the end. The male role is cut too short.
See it if You like small musicals about emotions and real life. You want to see something fresh with a great score and songs. You like DEH.
Don't see it if You want a musical with big production numbers or a fancy set. You can’t sit still for over 90 minutes!
