Great singing, Great writing, Great music, Raunchy, Absorbing

See it if You want to sip cocktails and watch a jazz era party spiral out of control in rhyming dialogue and song.

Don't see it if you don't know the source material, or will be irritated by not being able to hear or see every scene, depending on your seat & the mic'ing.

Absorbing, Immersive, Captivating, Delightful

See it if you like the 1920s, party scenes, all things "taboo", queer-inclusive stories, or even just some great songs.

Don't see it if you're offended by promiscuity or dislike interactive theatre. If you struggle to hear shows well plan ahead and ask staff about options.

Ambitious, Entertaining, Great singing, Great staging, Intense moments

See it if you want more than your money's worth for an off-off bway musical complete w/costumes, live band, big cast, free drink-the whole enchilada!

Don't see it if you can't go to Brooklyn- but it is worth the trip, the time and the cost, unless if you don't like period musical esp. in open stage style. Read more

Ambitious, Entertaining, Overly long, Interesting

See it if You're a fan of the Lippa version and want to see it staged live albeit not by the best singers.

Don't see it if You can't sit in uncomfortable chairs for almost 3 hours or you find outer parts of Brooklyn daunting. Read more

Great staging, Great singing, Fun

See it if you like the music--the cast is great. An excellent off-off-Broadway production that's performed all around the audience in cabaret seating

Don't see it if you don't like being close to the action or coming far into Brooklyn. Also, the show seemed a bit longer here than I remember it being.
