Great concept, talented musicians, intimate setting

See it if you've ever wondered about those talented underground musicians you pass every day

Don't see it if you need elaborate sets and major production value with your musicals

Entertaining, Disappointing, Quirky, Slow, Thought-provoking

See it if You are interested in poorly written, but interesting real-life stories of buskers

Don't see it if You are looking for a professionally written, professionally acted production

September 7th, 2017

"Though 'Buskers' gives these real artists a platform to display their art, the documentary and musical genres don't marry well onstage. What the audience is left with is a talent show/bio show that doesn't quite come together as a theatrical piece. But even if 'Buskers' doesn't cohere so well, there are plenty of songsters and music to keep you glued to your seat...Despite these flaws, ‘Buskers’ unites voices that you wouldn't normally hear together."
