Avg Score

Quirky, Amateurish, Slow, Disappointing, Banal

See it if you want to see an impressive cast of Bway/Off-Bway stalwarts inexplicably cast in a silly, harebrained musical farce set in the Old West.

Don't see it if ur looking for something highbrow (or even middlebrow); u expect belly laughs, wit and/or satire. [This is pretty fluffy & juvenile stuff.]

Beautifully played, Inventively staged, Sharply written, Tuneful, Funny

See it if you’d like to see a funny, silly send-up of the Western (with a bit of monster movie thrown in).

Don't see it if you’re in a deeply serious mood: You might find the silliness grating.

Also A parasitic monster is feeding off a dying town. Sound dire? “TUMACHO”... Read more Read less

Winning, Witty, Wonderful, Wacky, Wild west

See it if for clever full-of-surprises script/songs, fabulous staging, and terrific cast. See Phillipa Soo in a tiny theater! So much fun!

Don't see it if you dislike broad humor. If you only like Ibsen/Chekhov/Pinter, don't go. Sound system probs sh be fixed. 6 men, 3 women. (Male musician).

During previews
Wacky western town plagued by daffy demon

See it if Faux western comedy with some music. The height of silliness without bellylaughs -- the specialty of Clubbed Thumb. A really talented cast

Don't see it if There is nothing offensive about this play -- except perhaps to Western fanatics. Much fun is made of the genre. Loved the singing cactus.

Delightful, Quirky, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if It’s fun. It’s funny. It hosts really good actors who appear to have as much fun as the audience.

Don't see it if You can’t take a good horse opera or a good horse joke. Or if you aren’t in the mood to laugh.

Weird in a delightful way, Great staging, Great acting, Quirky, Hilarious

See it if you enjoy genre-mixing - in this case western, musical, fantasy/horror, slapstick comedy, even puppetry - and like intimate productions

Don't see it if you need an intermission; you are triggered by content such as jokingly presented mind control and "ravaging"

Also This show reminded me of the Vampire Cowboys productions, which is the... Read more Read less
