Clever, Entertaining, Relevant, Quirky, Ambitious

See it if you's enjoy a new musical in its early stages with a talented cast pouring out lots of energy providing some laughs and important messages.

Don't see it if you want a refined production - bare stage with few props, recorded music - great to just okay voices, and it runs longer than advertised.
