About the show

A musical comedy about a woman trying to make it in the startup world. More…

"The Startup Culture" is a parody musical based on the music of "The Pajama Game," set in a modern day startup office. Watch as Babe fights against the powers that be to help get her workers, the Blackbelts, the seltzer and a beer keg they deserve. And is there a romance afoot? You’ll have to come see to find out.

Disappointing, Insipid, Thought-provoking, Overrated

See it if Less than an hour. Some new talent trying. Pals will enjoy the production.

Don't see it if Very disappointed.No set to speak of, Steps steep. Seems that there is an attempt to have a different production every hour.

Disappointing, Funny, Quirky, Clever, Relevant

See it if you want to see a light musical comedy on issues of current start up companies. It has potential but needs tightening up & more development.

Don't see it if if you are offended by language and sexual office talk of the past. Also, found it difficult to hear some of the lines/songs by cast.

59
Banal, Cliched, Raunchy, Amusing, Whimsical

See it if you want an impish spoof of PAJAMA GAME (music set to new - and often sexually graphic - lyrics). Earnest actors, lively engagement.

Don't see it if you expect the highest caliber professional polish. This is a workshop-in-waiting - eagerly trying out material. Spoof could be cleverer.

Cliched, Disappointing, Confusing, Excruciating, Insipid

See it if You know someone in the show. About half our audience did. You like 12-year-old boy humor.

Don't see it if You want to see anything intelligent or people with any modicum of talent. This stooped to the lowest level.

Ambitious, Entertaining, Hilarious, Great cast, Promising

See it if you enjoy musical comedy with corporate theme but less business and more silly/guilty pleasures. The Loft is nice venue for this small show.

Don't see it if you expect big sets, venue, cast. But for the small admission price, this is a great bargain for the show's talents and entertainment value.

Relevant, Confusing

See it if If you like shows based on a classic idea. The Pajama Game meets start ups. It uses the original music with different lyrics so good music

Don't see it if Great singing from all cast members, you are offended by not well written lyrics that can be pretty raw. Great idea not too well executed.

Also This is a great idea - updating Pajama Game to triads but also in Me T... Read more Read less

Rudimentary, Entertaining, Short, Confusing

See it if for talented young playwright and cast at early stage of their carriers.

Don't see it if interested in more seasoned performance. This show is rudimentary in all aspects.

Also Venue is fresh and comfortable on second floor with steep narrow stair... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Funny, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if You're interested in the idea, if you enjoy parodies and improv, you want to laugh

Don't see it if The premise doesn't always work, and sometimes seems like a work still in progress

60
Derivative, Plucky, Amateurish, Topical

See it if you like parody shows, enjoy improv actors and their style of acting (and singing), and want to see a spoof of today's "office" culture.

Don't see it if you're impatient with canned music tracks backing up lyrics from an old musical (sometimes slowly), or are bored by youth-oriented parodies.

Also This is a cute show that benefits from plucky commitment of the actors... Read more Read less

See it if You know someone in the show.

Don't see it if you were expecting something more than a high school theater class project. Worst thing i've seen in a long time.

Confusing, Disappointing, Raunchy, Funny

See it if You want to support amateur artists in a strange, over-the-top, occasionally amusing and occasionally embarassing parody.

Don't see it if You want anything polished. It was so slapdash, sloppy, and forced that I genuinely thought I'd misunderstood and was watching improv.

Confusing, Cliched, Disappointing, Raunchy, Quirky

See it if You like over-the-top parodies that make fun of the "buzzing" startup culture. You know about "The Pajama Game".

Don't see it if You like an interesting storyline with a clear message, or a refined production. You are uncomfortable with raunchy jokes.

Also I appreciate the efforts of the team behind this production, and overa... Read more Read less
