See it if U like current events relating to politics & media news in the form of a light hearted musical with good writing, acting,music.& staging.

Don't see it if You want to see a show with substance, good music, or one that can be taken seriously
See it if Meet John Aetta before the show, he wrote it, very nice person. I thought the show was okay, needs some tweaking but has a lot of potential.
Don't see it if It is not for everyone, can be corny at some points as well as slow. At that theater complex , I liked the cloths make the man 2.

See it if If you plays about Politics and enjoy an evening of theatre in the East Village. The cast is fun and funny,
Don't see it if You a expect a full musical. This is more a play with music. Don't expect big Broadway sets, costumes etc.

See it if you enjoy satirizing Trump and seeing the focus on how covering him as a newscaster affects many lives. Some clever lyrics and funny scenes
