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.

Entertaining / huge potential for full-on production, Just ok piped-in music / good set for this venue, High-energy committed supporting performances, Hysterical lyrics / solid male lead (singing & acting), Dark comedy / original (refreshing) book / resonant

See it if you fully understand what dark comedy & FRINGE ENCORE SERIES means, & don't expect a grandiose Metropolitan Opera House musical production.

Don't see it if you're remotely bougie, don't like small productions, & have NO sense of humor. This small/short mess is HYSTERICAL, & it won't be for you. Read more

Gia On The Move
November 30th, 2018

“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.”

Washington Square News

“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."
