See it if At first I did not like this wacko absurdist western, but its juvenile humor grew on me. Great set. Enjoyable songs.
Don't see it if I understand how some people could give this 85, others 50. It's like an extended SNL skit. You might enjoy it or just cringe.
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.]
CRITIC’S PICK. "The Strange Delights of a Supernatural Horse Opera: Ethan Lipton’s delirious Western comedy features a pigtailed gunslinger, a soul-sucking demon and singing puppet cactuses, among other inspired flights of fancy."
"'Tumacho' Is a Country-Western Elementary School Pageant for Adults
Ethan Lipton's musical play performs off-Broadway with an all-star cast."
"This is a full-fledged play with music, a semi-musical western spoof of uncertain intentions beyond indulging the kind of silliness I associate with the entertainment at children's birthday parties. Hardcore Lipton fans may disagree; to anyone looking for comedy with a little bite, caveat emptor."
"To review dramatist/lyricist/composer Ethan Lipton's Tumacho almost feels like missing the point of this endearingly oddball 'play with songs,' a comic pastiche of Western and horror tropes that is essentially the theatrical equivalent of an old Hollywood B-movie."
"One crazy development follows another, with the humor stemming from unexpected words and actions, like an over-the-top feast 'Tumacho' glops down the hatch almost as if it were made of Tic-Tacs. Too many such japes fire comic blanks, though."
