Ambitious, Insipid, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Cliched

See it if you'd enjoy new work with potential that has a lot of energy by a mostly young cast, singing, playing instruments and acting on a bare stage

Don't see it if you expect perfection - here the acting, singing and choreography are uneven and the music has mostly the same tone throughout. Read more

Good energy, Lots of new aged references, Funny, Thought-provoking, Great singing

See it if you miss hippies and the New Age. Sweet multi-racial cast in post robot apocalypse La Boheme done with minimal sets and interesting costumes

Don't see it if you have issues with police brutality (one short scene). This is a would be big musical being done in a stripped down mode.

Funny, Quirky, Thought-provoking, Slow

See it if Story is interested, with singing and music. Has a touch of the 60's.

Don't see it if You want a perfect show. Read more

Extraordinarily bad, A vanity project, Excruciating

See it if you want to see a group of young actors do their best with what they have to work with

Don't see it if an author who seems to obtain all of his knowledge from reality and conspiracy TV and declares himself insightful isn't for you Read more

Slow, Indulgent, Disappointing

See it if Some of the singing is good, though the songs themselves aren't great. Weird dystopic/New Age vibe. Might be of appeal to someone. Not me.

Don't see it if The cast are good, but the play isn't. It's not exactly BAD, but I wish I'd stayed home instead of going. Learn from my mistake.
