Set in 1984, this musical comedy revue sees an inept President taking refuge at a Shelter Cabaret with the best remaining entertainers around, as WWIII begins. More…
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.

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

See it if You are left wing, remember the 1980s nuclear freeze movement, like time capsule plays. Like political satire in stand up and song form.
Don't see it if You don’t enjoy left-wing humor. Mind dated references. Songs that are pretty good but not great some build problems during the show.

Don't see it if you don't like political jokes, some dated themes, & a non conventional theater venue but the great talented cast is worth checking it out !
See it if You remember the 80's arms race and want to laugh about it. Or just to see incredibly talented comedic performers in dark & fun musical.

Don't see it if You're looking for a narrative plot, or a polished production (fwiw, I thought the lack of polish made this all the cooler)
