Excruciating, Insipid, Disappointing

See it if Only go if you know someone in it.

Don't see it if Don't want to waste 90 minutes on a sophomoric not acted or staged well or poorly writren show.

Entertaining, Dated, Funny, Indulgent, Excruciating

See it if You're an Orange is the New Black fan or you appreciate a crude comedy.

Don't see it if You're easily offended, have difficulty understanding fast hip hop lyrics, or have trouble with loud noises in small spaces. Read more

"If you have ever insisted that 2018 is definitely not too late for an oddly slavish interspecies parody of the first season of 'Orange Is the New Black'...Then sit. Stay. Otherwise, this is not exactly a walk in the park...Too many of the same crass jokes repeat, and the episodic plot pulls in too many directions...But the actors are enjoying themselves. Because, while the material could be funnier and a lot less derivative...it’s brash, bratty and unabashed in its embrace of queer sexuality."

"All the good jokes get lost in the onslaught of cast members vying for their moments and looking for the audience's approval, which admittedly was offered freely. Bitches becomes chaotic, crude and in your face, not to mention clichéd, the clichés hiding behind dirty jokes and blatant shtick. Raine clearly can't rein in the cast's enthusiasm even though they are portraying animals with animal passions."

"Entertaining...Original music...grafts these canine and feline-related puns atop popular songs...to alternately hilarious and groan-worthy effect...If you're a fan of yelling, barking, cursing, filthy puns that deftly handle issues of race and class, and almost constant singing and dancing, this show is for you. Although the level of onstage talent is widely uneven, there are some truly skilled players in the cast, and the play proves to be an entertaining diversion for a late-night crowd."

"Wonderfully directed by Michael Raine, 'Locked Up B*tches' lives and thrives off of the fun of its cast. From the very beginning, they like each other and are here to give a good show. The perks of off-broadway is that you will have the most creative works and generous actors coming together to give a show that aims to leave a great memory; 'Locked Up B*tches does'....A funny, thoughtful play."

"Production value is initially astounding...It is worth noting that this show originated as a serial of ten-minute plays written for a weekly competition show...Without this knowledge, fans of Klopfenstein’s work might be underwhelmed by his musical contribution. The script is more like binge watching a recurring MADtv sketch than a musical. The commitment to character from the performers is intoxicating...About half of the rapping works...This show is goofy stupid fun."
