Great singing, Clever, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Entertaining

See it if you are open to being exposed to both rough and tender moments faced by students of color portrayed by current students who harmonize well.

Don't see it if you have difficulty keeping up with fast talkers, do not like screaming, or want cohesive story from start to finish in a low budget show.

Resonant, Thought-provoking, Intense, Indulgent, Excruciating

See it if You want to see the raw dissatifaction of a group of students of color at NYU Tisch.

Don't see it if U r offended by cacophonous, angry, aspiring members of the entertainment world who seem to b protesting their NYU Tisch faculty treatment.

Redundant, Intense, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Ambitious

See it if You like the "others" or the marginalized perspective. I actually experienced the premise of this play, in college. Good concept. Needs work

Don't see it if Could've been shorter and the point was beaten into your head- over abs over again..,

Resonant, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Intense, Indulgent

See it if you're a person of color who doesn't feel their story is being told; want to support young actors of color; are a white theater professor.

Don't see it if you're a white person uncomfortable with whiteness being decentered; you're looking for a narrative rather than personal testimonials. Read more

Thought-provoking, Funny, Ambitious

See it if If you have a college age student of color in your life

Don't see it if You don’t care about the struggles of college students of color and what they are faced with a predominately white colleges

Funny, Intense, Relevant

See it if you identify as a person of color who wants their story told

Don't see it if you want a story, instead of a theatre piece
