Funny, Entertaining, Quirky, Silly, Weak singing

See it if You want to see a completely silly (in a good way) show that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Cute fun songs and plot.

Don't see it if You’re looking for serious storyline or talent. It’s all fun and games here.

Delightful, Funny, Entertaining, Clever, Quirky

See it if you enjoy a good laugh with some basic music with hilarious lyrics on dark subjects. Energetic cast delivers what could be a future hit.

Don't see it if you are bothered by bare bones productions with canned music and simple costumes and props.

“Totally inventive. A home run for first time musical theater playwrights Lyman and Rosick accompanied by a very lively, Adyn Wood...A not so dark, irreverent dark comedy about a frustrated therapist, Dr. Hansen, who reluctantly agrees to participate in creating a new musical with two desperate patients...This maelstrom-musical-light is filled with catchy tunes and witty riffs, and delivers some pretty decent punch lines. Silly to the core and totally satisfying.”

“Fresh and engaging...The writing duo goes head to head with the typically weighty and unaddressed topics of suicide, self-worth, and failure...Their combined experience is what separates this musical from those poking fun at mental health, offering, instead, solidarity and empathy to those who struggle with it...The show tackles a tremendous issue, but in a way that’s accessible through theatrical performance.”

For a previous production

"Delightfully twisted...Even in the darkest recesses of life, there are often opportunities to extract some humor, which is what this show cleverly accomplishes...This all nimbly transpires on a small stage with a few pieces of office furniture. Despite the grim subject matter, the show cleverly unearths plenty of laughs. Rosick’s music and lyrics are especially entertaining."
