About the show

FRIGID New York @ Horse Trade presents a musical adaptation of 'The Book of Genesis,' which retells the creation story with brutal accuracy. More…

In the beginning, God was bored and made the whole world to entertain himself. Once he finished his greatest creation, humans, he stumbled around for a while trying to figure out what the hell to do with the damn things. 'Let There Be Stuff' explores the stories of 'The Book of Genesis' including all the details your Sunday School teacher conveniently left out.

Clever, Great singing, Quirky, Raunchy

See it if You want to see a play about a person who says he is god and tells the story of creation with profanity and blasphemy. You have an open mind

Don't see it if You will be offended by the many ill references of creation and how mankind came to be.

Clever, Entertaining, Cliched, Ambitious, Raunchy

See it if you have seen everything else, and want something different. I liked parts, but some parts were just not needed. I appreciated the attempt.

Don't see it if you are religious, or offended easily. I am neither, but sometimes they tried too hard. I love South Park and Avenue Q, this was not close.

Also jokes got repetitive and over used. They were going for shock factor a... Read more Read less

Banal, Excruciating, Insipid

See it if Sorry, just sorry. I'm sure they're nice people, but strictly minor league book, lyrics, and performances. Not ready for off-off-Bdwy

Don't see it if You don't want to see the high school play on your big night out in NYC.

Banal, Great singing, Insipid, Cliched, Disappointing

See it if you want some great singing, raw talent in an East Village production in an otherwise insufferable amateur production with an improv feel

Don't see it if you want a mostly hackneyed perspective on the Bible and find gratuitous swearing clever and edgy. Waste of great acting and singing talent

Disappointing

See it if you know someone in it.

Don't see it if You want to see a show worth your time. I didn't like it I was disappointed because it was compared to Hand to God and Book of Mormons,not

Disappointing, Insipid, Just plain bad

See it if I'm honestly struggling to think of a reason to see this. Maybe if you have a friend in the cast and a very convincing poker face.

Don't see it if you enjoy theater. This show is just plain bad. Honestly, the only positive thing I can say is that the actors were off book.

Eh, you have to love repetitive profanity

See it if Want to learn how man was made in God's image and the results are not pretty. All bad human acts start with Genesis

Don't see it if Do Not want to be bombarded by incessant profanity that takes away instead of adding to the story You think the Bible contains only good

Also It is an interesting view of the stories in the Bible but not presente... Read more Read less

Raunchy, Irreverent, Clever, Sometimes funny

See it if You'd enjoy a raunchy and irreverent musical (performed by a likable talented cast) skewer the Book of Genesis in a profanity laced show.

Don't see it if You are offended by profanity (there is lots here) and/or very raunchy satire of God and religion. You dislike "South Park" type humor.

Also God is an angry and vengeful psychopath in this very raunchy and irrev... Read more Read less

See it if You like honesty, espically when exposes hypocrisy. You like progressive, new theater. You are open to personal interpretation of religion.

Don't see it if You are sensitive to raunchy language or want to see a classic musical. You are not interested in different interpretations of Christianity.

Hypocrites stay away! a friend? walked out ranting,"this is so f**king offensive!"

See it if you enjoy tweaking pompous asses.A friend left early, being really vulgar about how vulgar 'they' found the show.That still has me laughing!

Don't see it if you have an aversion to the F word, or you cringe at religious humor. Also, definitely avoid if you're a pompous ass, e.g. my 'friend'.

Ambitious, Raunchy, Hilarious, Intelligent, Clever

See it if you'd enjoy 1 of the more honest Biblical shows. Subject is accurate to Genesis & also totally vulgar (God has a warped sense of humor).

Don't see it if you are offended by non-PC laughs & raunchy lyrics; in other words, you've no ability to unclench those "cheeks". Everyone else-take a shot.

Also This is a show for a special type of audience. Many people will be thr... Read more Read less

Enjoyed the "hell": out of this show-twisted in the best way

See it if you must purge religious rage with some sick,twisted,hilarious heresy! This blaspheming show is infinitely ruder than 'Mormon' & more honest

Don't see it if you can't accept that the Bible can be absurd, and you are offended by "The Aristocrats","South Park" and any humor that is far from subtle.

Also Most of the haters out there are complaining about the vulgarity and t... Read more Read less
