About the Show

​Inspired by Pushkin's 'Eugene Onegin,' this new musical presents a thoroughly modern tale of young artists struggling to find themselves in a world where their bond with each other is often the only refuge from despair.

Ambitious, Excruciating, Indulgent, Quirky, Slow

See it if If you like theater in works. A predictable ending. Un necessarily long productions.

Don't see it if If you want to see a show that needs reworking or is predictable all the way.

Ambitious, Indulgent, Slow, Entertaining, Disappointing

See it if Original musical of quirky theatre kids forging friendships in hopes of making their dreams realise. All on stage appear to share sentiment.

Don't see it if Not to dash dreams, but this is a showcase and expect rough production values from both sides of the page.

Melodramatic, Philosophical, Meta, Excruciating, Slow

See it if While there may be people who will enjoy unironically I would recommend it as a good cringe-watch. It's on the edge of so-bad-it's-good.

Don't see it if You dislike art that fails to deal with serious subject matter (mental illness/suicide) in a meaningful way. You dislike melodrama. Read more

Tons of potential, Relevant / resonant / absorbing, Meaningful (long) book / ambitious (long) score, Clunky awkward (dangerous) set, Good singing / just ok (bit cliched) acting

See it if you enjoy supporting new up-n-coming shows, small theatre co's, debuting performers. It's a meaningful moving musical, w/tons of potential.

Don't see it if you can't handle 2hrs & 45min w/10min int. Long-winded book & score DEF need major purging, but time flew by. You get caught up & invested. Read more

Ambitious, Disappointing, Excruciating, Slow, Indulgent

See it if you are interested in musicals about young actors breaking into the business. There were a few breakout performers trying very hard.

Don't see it if you like musicals that challenge your imagination. The show was overly long and very predictable. There was little subtext in the dialogue

Ambitious, Disappointing, Great singing, Excruciating, Slow

See it if You are interested in a modern day version of Eugene Onegin. There were some good singers but the acting was uneven.

Don't see it if You are impatient with long, drawn out stories.
