Dated, Amateurish, Cliched, Insipid, Juvenile

See it if you know someone in the show. Otherwise, steer clear. Even Dorian Gray would be screaming, "D'AH F'UH???" if he'd sat through this mess.

Don't see it if it ever comes back. Poorly produced, terribly weak "singing", amateur "acting", silly staging. And these guys are NOT new to this business!

Confusing, Slow, Funny

See it if you are interested in anything Dorian Gray, liked The Picture of Dorian Gray, and do not mind a confusing story and over the top characters.

Don't see it if you prefer a well developed story and relistic characters.

Hilariously bad, Excruciating, Confusing, Funny, Dizzying

See it if you missed the original "Moose Murders," you want to see a train wreck, and you can appreciate a very game Ilene Kristen doing her best.

Don't see it if you can't overlook the problems with the script and the musical arrangements and just have fun Read more

See it if if you need to see the most aptly titled piece of theatre you'll likely ever see.

Don't see it if Just don't. It's very rare to find a production or piece of theatre so thoroughly wrong that it has nothing to recommend it; not a moment or Read more
