Ambitious, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if you have a friend involved in the production.

Don't see it if you are looking for good theatre.

Cliched, Disappointing, Excruciating, Indulgent, Banal

See it if You wish to see a big musical in development with social conciousness. Some of the ballads are nice and the children in it are wonderful.

Don't see it if You want a show that doesnt beat a message into you with a one sided political view and a lack of actual perspective.

Disappointing

See it if you are interested in learning about the Occupy Wall Street movement at Zuccotti Park.

Don't see it if If you are expecting a polished performance of a musical that would rival an Off-Broadway production.

Theatre is Easy
August 25th, 2016

"As the theater echoes with Giancarlo de Trizio’s plastic-tub percussion, and dancing, chanting performers beckon us onstage, we feel as though we’ve become part of a lively protest...'Zuccotti Park' maintains this inclusive energy throughout...While the musical tries to clarify some of the issues in which Occupy took root, often via satirical song-and-dance numbers, it is through these personal tales that Zuccotti Park truly shines."

"A failed attempt to conquer the daunting task of establishing equilibrium between addressing important social issues and formulating a source for song and dance that will provide enjoyable entertainment...The book and lyrics by Catherine Hurd, although still relevant, are old news...The music by Vatrena King is less than pedestrian...At this stage, this production does not provide any insightful ideas nor does it provide enough engaging entertainment."

Stage Buddy
February 26th, 2015
For a previous production

"In the spirit of productions like 'Rent' and 'Hair,' 'Zuccotti Park' is a welcome addition to the musical that cares…Wonderfully crafted with soul-stirring numbers, 'Zuccotti Park' electrified the crowd, resonating with the soul of revolution. Brian Kinnard as Tom, a homeless veteran singing 'I’m Your Hero,' has a show stopping number. Director Luis Salgado and the entire ensemble bring justice and fervor to a movement that can no longer be ignored."
