Ambitious, Entertaining, Great staging, Resonant, Dizzying

See it if Gallery's on a roll w/this raucous, profane & absorbing production of the Tony winning musical Brennan's fleet staging is the evening's star

Don't see it if Over amplification & some weak voices cause some loss of Sater's captivating lyrics As 2nd act gets serious the energy lags but no harm done

Thought-provoking, Romantic, Great staging, Delightful, Absorbing

See it if Spring Awakening has been our "Take Visitors To" musical since Pre-Broadway and Gallery has matched the later productions. Gallery rocks.

Don't see it if Those sensitive to youth awareness of sex and rejection problems should be wary Avoid the 2nd or ? row depending on Row A re: raking of seat Read more

Heavy, Thought-provoking, Profound, Great singing, Great acting

See it if you're a fan of this show or of youth culture. The intimate nature of this production doesn't sacrifice heart. Terrific talents on stage.

Don't see it if you need moments of levity in serious shows. Each and every moment is HEAVY and depressing.

Great singing, Absorbing

See it if The rock songs are phenomenal & all the young guys are very talented.

Don't see it if The rest of cast (especially the 2 older adults) were disappointing and hurt the flow/feel of the show.

Thought-provoking, Great staging, Great singing, Enchanting, Delightful

See it if You love the original or missed it and want to see a lovely group of talented young people put it on in an intimate setting.

Don't see it if You are uptight and think teenagers shouldn't learn about sex.

Compelling, dynamic leads., Thought-provoking, Intense, Great singing, Great staging

See it if A creative, strong, somber rock-oriented musical is for you. Great acting and singing. A strong GO! It got a standing ovation on 05/19/2019.

Don't see it if There were some audio issues opening performance, hopefully that will be worked out.

Theatre is Easy
May 21st, 2019

"It feels timelier than ever...Director Nick Brennan has made some smart choices, such as staging all the scenes with the adults above the stage, even when the characters are in the same room as the teenagers, further illustrating the enormous distance between them...For the most part, the singing is stronger than the acting, but given the beauty of Duncan Sheik's pop score and AnnMarie Milazzo's vocal arrangements, that's not the worst thing in the world."
