See it if Fun songs by Broadway cast and pre-show by comedian. Some fun skits in between songs.

Don't see it if Ran way longer than scheduled 90 minutes (my performance was 2 hours 10 min)- need to cut the intermission & some skits. Dragged in spots.

Clever, Entertaining, Great acting, Great singing, Great staging

See it if You like politically based humor presented by an awesome multi talented cast with creative direction.

Don't see it if You prefer shows with a more of a story line. This is more like SNL sketch comedy.

Resonant / relevant / very entertaining, Excellent piano-accompanist / intimate cabaret-bar seating, Clever humorous witty book & lyrics / great music (varied genres), Fearless committed cast / silly 'ography clicked, Strong acting & singing / high-energy performances

See it if you're looking for the perfect satirical musical for election-nite/week. A revival from the 80s, this small (very SNL) revue is a HOT mess.

Don't see it if you wouldn't enjoy a comedic musical in a church featuring political humor (real or satirical), & don't want to revisit the Reagan-era. Read more

Absorbing, Funny, Great singing, Hilarious, Resonant

See it if Broadway performers perform throwback songs to a simpler time when "only" problems were nuclear war and Russians.

Don't see it if You're looking for deep meaning.

Dated, Cliched, Ambitious, Great acting, Quirky

See it if you want to see a revival. This show is too dated for me. The actors were good & some of the singers were also good, but nothing stood out.

Don't see it if looking for something to wow you. The actors were talented, but the story is too dated. Read more
