Disappointing, Insipid

See it if You have a friend or family member in the cast. It runs 1 hour 10 minutes but many people walked out throughout the whole show.

Don't see it if Badly acted, many line flubs, terrible singing, very cheap set, absolutely horrible.


See it if like a 1 hr show. Throw back to cold war politics not relevant now. The cast tries, but this is closer to a high school production.

Don't see it if you want an evening with substance.

Original, Quirky, Dated, Amateur

See it if You like community theater-type productions with taped music. A couple of good performers, but there's weakness of the story and score.

Don't see it if You're expecting an engaging musical - the songs feel disjointed, and the plot is muddled.

Confusing, Insipid, Excruciating, Disappointing, Original

See it if If you don't mind low tech shows without real relatiationships and siongs that dont match the. Setting.

Don't see it if If you like a polished show with a story line that makes sense and complex music or dancing.

Insipid, Amateurish, Banal, Cliched, Disappointing

See it if there is nothing else to see

Don't see it if you're interested in a well-done musical. The book and score are poor as is the direction and most of the acting

Banal, Fluffy

See it if You have absolutely nothing to do or see.

Don't see it if If you expect an entertaining story with compelling music.

Entertaining, Funny, Family-friendly, Satirical

Dated, Fluffy, Quirky

See it if You don't expect too much from a play. There are some funny moments and songs, but many of the attempts at humor fail.

Don't see it if You like well-polished shows.

Disappointing, Ambitious, Off-key, Quirky, Unsuccessful

See it if You are not bothered by obvious attempts at humor, a low-budget production and an earnest cast that, unfortunately, frequently sang off-key.

Don't see it if You expect live musicians, a cast that can sing on-key and satire with some genuine humor.

Disappointing, Funny, Quirky

See it if You don't mind the quality of the overall production.

Don't see it if You enjoy large cast musicals with suburb acting.
