Confusing, Excruciating, Quirky, Disjointed, Problematic

See it if You want to look at Michael Glavan in a typical superhero outfit for two hours, and are able to shut your brain off.

Don't see it if You think a guy getting raped followed in 2 min by a joke about rape culture is okay; you find 30 variations on "Republicans are evil" funny

Clever, Delightful, Funny, Quirky, Great singing

See it if you love comedic musicals with a bit of political undertone. Comic book nerds will LOVE the show. Great music with strong singers!

Don't see it if you don't have a sense of humor.

"The book which tries to be funny is not. The show, which tries to be part spoof, part politically ironic and part musically entertaining, fails on all accounts. To make matters worse, the music is a bore and tuneless...The plot is not even smart enough for five-year-olds if they got the political barbs, or entertaining enough for adults...The choreography is amateurish with everything but some of the performances coming off as trite...What is good about this show is most of the cast."

“What appeared on stage was a dated musical with weak material, and 28 songs and reprises with only a handful being salvageable...It's a musical that seems to be lost in nostalgia...It's like watching the old guy at the party trying to be young and hip...But when something works, it really really works...Charles Abbott’s direction was weak to say the least...It was drab. The comic world should lead to a plethora of potential. Instead, it was just a series of missed opportunities.”
