Quirky, Disappointing, Great acting, Entertaining, Ambitious

See it if you enjoy stripped down musicals given a valiant effort by a young cast who give it their all to provide an entertaining presentation.

Don't see it if you cannot tolerate sound/mic problems keeping you from hearing when the music is too loud or the voices are distorted. Cast among audience. Read more

An unskilled production of a fosse classic that should have been taken out and shot to be put out of its misery, Excruciating, Disappointing

See it if experiencing an UNSKILLED production of a masterwork is your cup of tea.

Don't see it if you have a fond memory of any production of the musical whether it be from a Broadway production, the movie, or any high school production!!
