Delightful, Refreshing, Romantic

See it if Youyu are looking for another very good teenage academy production from the AMAS supported group

Don't see it if you are looking for an NYU production. That will be the next phase

Ambitious, Funny, Quirky

See it if you do not mind amateurish productions and you enjoy unsual plots.

Don't see it if you prefer professional productions amd would not enjoy teens playing adults.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Delightful

See it if You support youth! Oldest member of cast is 19, they work really hard to bring this show to life. I enjoyed it and had a good time.

Don't see it if You expect a Broadway production or if you don't support youth. Don't see it if you are going to criticize youth trying to do positive

Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Original, Refreshing, Quirky

See it if you are free for an afternoon, but don't expect your typical off-Broadway production. Some of the cast was great, but they are still young.

Don't see it if you are looking for an all star cast. This was performed by up and coming high-school kids. Some will go on to be the next stars of shows.

Disappointing, Excruciating, Slow

See it if If you want to support teens and small productions

Don't see it if You need great staging to be absorbed by the story. Are looking for great singing or acting. Not recommended. Walked out at intermission.

Relevant, Resonant

See it if you want to support and encourage the youth to go into theater. It's a nice production if you consider the age of the cast.

Don't see it if you are expecting pros. This particular staging is a cast of teens -- only one really stood out, but you can see the potential in the rest.

Slow, Quirky, Overrated, Funny

See it if You enjoy a funny, non traditional and quirky show

Don't see it if You enjoy big musical productions that are conventional with a strong storyline

Disappointing, Overrated, Slow

Don't see it if If you're expecting a great theme and really good music.
