Disappointing, Cartoonish, Overrated, Cliched, Terrible writing

See it if you're interested in gay plays. For THE pivotal moment in LGBT history, it treats people as 2D cartoons and their lives as a sitcom.

Don't see it if you're offended by LGBT stereotypes used for laughs and terrible writing. The characters are shallow. It's virtually a gay minstrel show. Read more

Great acting, Great staging, Great writing, Profound, Relevant

See it if You never have. A great cast in as intimate a space as you can have. History that has been forgotten well recreated. Christopher Street 1969

Don't see it if You won't care about a big moment in gay history. Are uncomfortable with very in your face performances. Read more

Great acting, Great staging, Great writing, Relevant, Epic

See it if ...you like sharp, strong productions of great American comedies, this one focusing on a pivotal time in LGBTQ history.

Funny, Clever, Relevant

See it if You have an interest in LGBT history cleverly written by one who lived it and entertainingly presented by a talented cast and crew.

Don't see it if you cannot understand why the beginnings of the gay rights movement are still relevant today.

Absorbing, Delightful, Great acting, Relevant

See it if You want an immediate, indelible impression of how a divided community in the shadows found unity, strength and light. Oh and it's hilarious

Don't see it if You can't stomach the queers or can't handle theater in unusual locations (far west chelsea gay bar). But, really, you should see it.

Stage Buddy
September 26th, 2017

"A laugh-filled evening (and some tears, too)...Finley's direction in this second revival is impeccable...He is the kind of director who lets the audience know it’s okay to laugh, allowing the humor of Wilson’s script to shine through...There is much humor in Wilson’s work, but there is a fine understanding of the gravity of this historic time...Don’t miss the fun and the rage and keep resisting, folks, because love always wins."
